Gruden rumors ... how many NFL guys have been able to

How many NFL guys have been able to take over a college program and have great success? I mean consistent CFP caliber success?

Are there lots of examples to justify why a program with the tradition and resources to attract a really good young college coach might see any logic in throwing mega bucks at John Gruden?

No, he’s first and foremost a college coach.

Mainly interested in guys who spent their coaching career in the NFL.

to Miami from the Cowboys. He would have won at the high school level with his commitment to winning.

CFP success? None, it's only been around 3 years though.

Apparently Gruden feels the same way.

Why in the world would Gruden leave the sweet deal he has now to go to be a college coach at a dumpster fire of a program? I've seen nothing from Gruden to indicate he has the slightest interest in coaching at the college level. Too many headaches with recruiting, schizoid alumnus, and dealing with academic eligibility stuff that he just doesn't have to put up with. Gruden is a pro guy (if he ever goes back to coaching) and Tennessee fans are living in fantasy land if they think he is coming to the rescue of their dumpster fire program.

Lastly - Gruden's been out of the coaching game a while (especially at the college level) - why is everyone looking at him as the next college coaching messiah when he has never done anything special at the collegiate coaching level? His last college coaching gig ended in 1990 (27 years ago) and he wasn't even a head coach at the time...

$12-14M in current gig with little pressure or responsibility - he just cannot see any coaching job that at the end of the day would be as appealing or profitable." Makes sense.

Would kill it in the College ranks.

Just my opinion.

Imagine Belichick coaching Tennessee.
They would punish everyone.

Heck he could take East Carolina to the CFP.

... so totally different in college that most pro coaches would probably not know how to function.
