BRISTOL, Conn. -- Jon Gruden agreed to a new contract with ESPN that keeps him in television -- and out of coaching -- for the next five years.
Looking to make a splash
Gruden has teamed with play-by-play commentator Mike Tirico and analyst Ron Jaworski, earning two Sports Emmy Award nominations.
Gruden coached the Oakland Raiders from 1998 to 2001 and the Bucs from 2002 to 2008. He went 100-85 with five division titles.
"Jon is a rare individual who has been successful at everything he has done, going from one of the youngest coaches to win a Super Bowl to reinventing himself with this new broadcasting career in his 40s," said his agent, Bob LaMonte.
