Sources around Jon Gruden shared that the former Oakland Raiders head coach is sending out feelers for a return to the NFL.

Gruden coached the Raiders from 1998-2001, compiling a 38-26 record and a 2-2 playoff mark. He led the Buccaneers a Super Bowl title in 2002 after leaving Oakland.

According to, Philadelphia is a potential landing place.

Its been rumored for years that, ifwhen Eagles coach Andy Reid no longer is coaching the Eagles, former Eagles offensive coordinator Jon Gruden could be lured back to town.

Now, Howard Eskin of WIP and FOX 29 reports that Gruden could be the next coach of the Eagles.

The move, obviously, hinges on the Eagles firing Reid. And on Gruden being interested.

Gruden has made it clear from time to time that hell coach again, even as ESPN has tried to make staying in the broadcast booth more and more attractive to the man who led the Bucs to a Super Bowl win a decade ago.
