    Peter King: "I wouldn't Be Surprised If Jon Gruden Was The Next Coach Of The Cowboys

    http://www.dallasnews.com/sports/dal...as-cowboys.ece

    Excerpt: "It started three weeks ago with the hiring of defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin. Defensive line coach Rod Marinelli came next, followed by special teams coach Rich Bisaccia.

    A string of three coaching hires in as many weeks, each with ties to the ’02 Tampa Bay Buccaneers squad that won Super Bowl XXXVII, has left plenty pondering if Cowboys owner Jerry Jones could be posturing himself for a run at Jon Gruden – the head coach of those ’02 Bucs – to be the next man to call the shots for the Cowboys.
    It might sound crazy, but it’s not unthinkable to Sports Illustrated’s Peter King.

    “I wouldn’t be shocked if Jon Gruden was the next coach of the Dallas Cowboys,” King said during an interview on KTCK-AM 1310 the Ticket this week.
    The total overhaul of current head coach Jason Garrett’s staff coupled with his loss of playcalling duties – seen by some as a something of a demotion – has led to speculation that Garrett’s seat is getting warm. And while King said that Garrett “has his own future in his hands” and can save his job by winning 10 games next year, he didn’t dismiss the notion that Jones has had second thoughts about his coach.

    “I do think that Jerry has had thoughts of changing coaches, and to me, Jon Gruden fits the whole ‘follow Jimmy with Switzer’ way,” King said. “I think Jon Gruden really fits the show biz thing that Jerry wants to do and the high-profile thing that Jerry would want to do. And I think that Jon Gruden fits Jerry Jones. But unless something really strange happens in the next few weeks, it won’t fit him now.” Read more...

    Peter King seems to be obsessed with Gruden, he keeps stirring up rumours about him.

    This is a story? That Peter King wouldn't be shocked by something?
