• Report: Gruden to get Browns ownership stake in offer to coach Vols

    Summary of 7 articles · Updated Nov 28, 2012
    According to the report, Gruden would be getting an ownership stake in the Cleveland Browns as part of the deal and a decision could be made as early as Wednesday. News Channel 3, the CBS affiliate in Memphis, reported that former NFL coach Jon Gruden has a contract offer in hand to coach the Vols and that it could be finalized by today. The report that new Browns owner Jimmy Haslam is offering an ownership stake in the Browns to Jon Gruden if Gruden will coach Haslam’s alma mater, the University of Tennessee, has been denied by both men. “Jimmy Haslam has no involvement in the University of Tennessee head coaching search, and the report that Jon Gruden would potentially have an ownership stake in the Browns is completely erroneous,'' read the statement, released by Browns spokesman Neal Gulkis. The station is reporting that Gruden has a contract offer in hand, but that part of the offer is the coach getting a piece of the Browns, who were recently bought by Jimmy Haslam III, one of UT’s biggest boosters. WREG News Channel 3 in Tennessee is reporting that the University of Tennessee may be landing former Raiders and Bucs head coach Jon Gruden. Given that ESPN repeatedly has declined to comment on whether “exclusive” means he can’t leave for a coaching job without violating his contract, it’s fair to assume he can.
