Jon Gruden will remain the Monday Night Football color man for the foreseeable future, in a move that was announced on tonight’s broadcast by his partner, noted media insider Mike Tirico. Who the hell knows how these contracts work in terms of whether he could leave the booth in a year or three, but this move should lay to rest the notion that he may be coaching the Raiders (or his “dream job” at Michigan) in two weeks. There are not many formidable names out there for this year’s NFL coaching carousel.
