Jay Gruden Not Interested In A Head Coaching Position

The Jacksonville Jaguars were reportedly interested in Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden for their head coaching position, but there have been mixed reports if the Jaguars ever actually were all that interested and whether or not permission to speak with him was ever officially asked for.

Well, apparently none of that even matters because Jay Gruden isn't interested in leaving the Bengals.

Adding to the report, NFL Network's Albert Breer notes that Gruden felt some commitment to stick with the Bengals because they have him a shot at being an NFL offensive coordinator. In Gruden's first season with the Bengals he helped the team make the playoffs and got quite a bit out of rookie quarterback Andy Dalton. It was noted this weekend that Gruden may have felt he was not ready for a head coaching position.
