Jon Gruden Signs An Exclusive Deal With ESPN, Won’t Coach For Five Years

  • Dan Fogarty

ESPN’s Jon Gruden will remain ESPN’s Jon Gruden for the next five years, according to a press release from ESPN PR. The Monday Night Football analyst has signed a contract extension with the network, and the deal is an exclusive one that will keep him out of coaching for the next five years.

The new deal begins in September 2012.

Gruden? Fired up.

“Our Monday Night Football crew is special, and to have the opportunity to continue to be a part of this team, working these big-time NFL prime time games every week on ESPN, I’m fired up,” he said.

The Miami Dolphins? Probably not as fired up.
