First, when I say K-town media, I'm really talking about the Doc, Jeff and Heather show. Jeff just said "yeah, apparently Gruden just denied any interest in the Tennessee job this morning on ESPN".
Nice reporting moron. Little dramatic to say he denied any interest in the Tennessee job. Gruden may not come to Tennessee, but it's almost like guys like Jeff are hoping he doesn't. Mike & Mike ask Gruden if there is anything truth to the browns/tenn job and Gruden says no.
The Jeff goes on the radio and says "yeah, Gruden denied any interest at all in the Tennessee job'. What an idiot.
Now, as for the Gruden comments, two things:
1) Go listen to it on youtube. I thought he was surprised by the question and was agitated to be put on the spot like that. He finally just said "guys, I appologize, but I really don't have time to talk about coaching speculation....let's get on to the real nuts and bolts of the Mike & Mike show". He was clearly annoyed to be put on the spot. Totally doesn't mean he's coming to Tennessee, but I thought his answer was interesting. He's obviously never going to say "oh, yeah, those rumors...there's some truth to that..." He cut if off quickly so there were no follow up questions.
2) I'm an auditor and trained to read people. The most interesting part of the interview to me was that it seemed that Gruden knew exactly what rumors they were talking about. It just was reported late last night. Maybe he got up early this morning and read about it, but I would have expected him to say something more along the lines of "huh, no, I haven't heard about that one...that sounds pretty ridiculous..."
Anyway, I think the Browns ownership stuff is probably BS, but it could be part of what's slowing the deal down.
I don't necessarily agree he wouldn't have known. I'm sure friends of his who caught wind of it probably blew up his phone telling him about it.
I don't know if I'd speculate too much about it. He's not going to confirm anything until there's a piece of paper to sign.
This is so crazy were hanging on to every word, analyzing his speech and probably next is a synopsis of how his face looks when he says what he says.
Welcome to Grudenmania.

I think you might narrow your gaze a bit. K-Town media might be a little broad. Might be some folks who peruse this board who would take issue with that.
that's why i specifically said I meant the morning show on sports animal.
That is why you should listen to the EA Show on TSR 1180am or on the internet or on your smart phone with the app
Today I learned I can't count on radio talk shows for accuate news. Guess I'm going to have to renew my WSJ subscription now.
gruden probably has an agent who would have made him aware of the rumors before the show.
Yep. I apparently breezed over the first sentence. Shame on me!
Now he Browns have released a statement denying any involvement. I bet the GM's phone at that Memphis station has rung all morning
