Let's look at the facts here:

1. Jimmy sexton graduated and was a manager at ut

2. His entire family bleeds orange

3. Any decisions he's made in getting us a football coach have been business first, which is how you operate a business. Period.

4. I can assure you that no one loves tn more or bleeds a truer shade of orange than mr. Sexton and his family for that matter.

This notion that he has somehow "played" this program by pushing his guys here is comical. Jimmy didn't make mike hamilton choose dooley over sumlin. Or make mike hamilton choose kiffin over kelly, hamilton made both of those decisions. You cannot fault a businessman for pushing his clients into positions of prominence.

What i can say that as of this am around 8 or so i still feel good that gruden could be our next coach, but nothing is set in stone either way at this time.

Fuad Reviez said this morning in an interview with the sports monster here in the Tri-cities that Gruden is not coming to Tennessee. He said I want to make it clear. It's not going to happen.

Gruden, Haslam, Browns shoot down Memphis report over UT deal » GoVolsXtra

Didnt see where this info was posted. Basically all this says is that Gruden has not been offered a job, that Haaslam is not part of the search, and that Gruden has not been offered an intrest in the Browns.

Gruden has not declined nor has he turned down the Vols.

ESPN - No offer from Vols

Jon Gruden says Tennessee Volunteers have not offered him job to replace Derek Dooley - ESPN

Jon Gruden says he hasn't received an offer to coach Tennessee as part of a deal that includes becoming part owner of the NFL's Cleveland Browns.

According to a report by Memphis TV station WREG, Gruden was weighing an offer to coach the Volunteers that also would give him a piece of the Browns, who are owned by Jimmy Haslam -- brother of Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam. Their father, Jim, played on the Vols' 1951 national championship team.

Gruden, a former NFL coach and current "Monday Night Football" analyst, said Wednesday on ESPN Radio's "Mike & Mike In The Morning" that there is "no truth" to the report. In the past reports Gruden has been linkied to various NFL and college openings.

"I'm just excited about Monday Night Football and getting ready for the Giants and the Redskins," Gruden said. "I don't have time to get into all that stuff. I like what I'm doing and I'm just trying to hang on to the job I have. Let's leave it at that."

Browns spokesman Neal Gulkis said Jimmy Haslam has no involvement in the University of Tennessee's coaching search, and the report that Gruden would potentially have an ownership stake in the Browns is "completely erroneous."

Tennessee didn't immediately return a call from The Associated Press. The Vols are looking to replace Derek Dooley, who was fired on Nov. 18.

Additional points made by former Vols-quarterback Jerry Colquitt on the Basilio Show:

"The Gruden Option – Does anyone get the feeling the longer this plays out the worse the outcome for the coaching search? As a fan, I am beaten down and my hopes are in the tank for a successful ending to all this drama. . . . The fact that we haven’t heard Gruden outwardly turn the job down to avoid distractions for Monday Night Football tells me two things.

HE HASN’T BEEN OFFERED THE JOB – This would be disturbing in that you have to question are we trying to be competitive if we’ve not offered him the job. I view Gruden as a true professional and with that Monday Football can’t be compromised. It’s in MNF’s best interest to squash rumors and avoid drama if he were offered the job. Also, accepting the coaching job at Tennessee with a month left of MNF isn’t the same as a coach in limbo who is on his way to another job – so there is no conflict of interest. That makes me believe he’s not been offered the job.

CHAMPIONSHIP WEEKEND – When you hear of top tier names being eliminated by this weekend, this spells trouble. Remember, NFL teams and ADs at the schools of the rumored candidates are well aware of their commodities being of interest for the Tennessee job. This means their bosses will be contacting them proactively to gauge their interest so they can replace them accordingly. With recruiting, bowl games and playoff games around the corner, they will make their employees publicly take their names out of the hat. If Jim Mora Jr, Charlie Strong, The Fishers, Jon Gruden, Gary Patterson or Dan Mullen’s name is taken out of the coaching hat this weekend, it will be a huge disappointment. Times will be reminiscent of the days of Mid Major Mike if none of these coaches are in play over the next week.

A worrisome part of all this is most teams “REQUEST TO INTERACT WITH A PROSPECTIVE COACH” and that is public and transparent. Yet, there’s been no public knowledge of Tennessee requesting for interaction with one of their employees. These requests are typically made public in early December during coaching changes. When news of this is made public, I will know Tennessee is zeroing in on a candidate.

So, I believe Gruden is not involved with Tennessee but he better be."

Per VQ

"Figured I'd throw out what I've heard, not that anyone will give it much credence I'm sure

I have a cousin who used to be a sports writer for the Tampa Tribune. He knows JG somewhat and said he is NFL all the way. His exact words were "Never happen. Forget it. Trust me on this". Got that text this morning

I also know one of Cindy Gruden's cousins fairly well. He talked to her mother over Thanksgiving and she said that they were seriously considering the UT job. According to her, JG is really struggling with leaving the booth, mainly because of his family and the time issue. Cindy feels like when he is coaching, she only has a husband for about 2 weeks a year. Its just the way he is. Coaching consumes him. There is the appeal of her moving back closer to her family and that might mitigate some of the concerns she has. The family (again, according to her cousin) feels like the NFL is not really an option. So as of last Thursday, they had not decided anything.

So there you have it. My sources are completely contradictory. I'd say thats why Brent and others are having such a hard time with this. Good, close sources are adamant both ways. Should be interesting.

TFWIW"

Hey guys,

I know the timing of this is bad, but my daughter has to go see an allergist at 1pm here for some things she is dealing with. I will try and hit the board in the waiting room and will get right back to everyone ASAP.

Dave Hart is currently in the office and not one is putting anything rumor wise to bed regarding Gruden.

The rest of BJRPA is working to get all we can find out.

Thanks back soon, I promise.
