Gruden has been working in television since he was fired by the Bucs following the 2008 season. Earlier this month, ESPN colleague Ron Jaworski told a Philadelphia radio station that Gruden has not closed the door on a return to coaching.
"He's had numerous meetings that he's told teams he's not interested in certain jobs," Jaworski said. "There are jobs he's interested in, but no one at those teams has reached out to him, or they may even have a coach in place."
Is the Dallas job one of the positions that interests Gruden? We don't know, but it doesn't make much sense for the Cowboys to build their current staff around a future coach. You could even say it's ridiculous.
