Jay Gruden refuses

Jay Gruden doesn’t seem interested in leaving Cincinnati this year.  He’s declined the Colts interview request:

Twice this month, the Bengals’ offensive coordinator has rejected an opportunity to be considered for a coaching job.  First it was the Jaguars.  Now, he has spurned an overture from the Colts, according to Charley Casserly of CBS.

Gruden, who drew rave reviews for his work with rookie quarterback Andy Dalton, has signed a three-year extension with the Bengals, but he can leave at any time to become a head coach.  If, of course, he wants to.
