"Overnight, it was reported by the Chattanooga Times Press that Gruden had a lucrative offer, but the holdup between the two parties was the salaries of the assistant coaches.
However, according to Jimmy Hyams of WNML radio in Knoxville, Gruden is out as a candidate, and there was no offer ever made, and no face-to-face interview was conducted. He told Tennessee, ‘thanks, but no thanks’. He basically used the propaganda at Tennessee as leverage for NFL jobs."
Tennessee fans will be spending the rest of the weekend sweeping their shattered dreams of Gruden coaching the Vols. After all of this, the Tennessee coaching search is going to resemble the "Lowered Expectations" skits from the old MAD TV series on FOX.
