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.

About Todd Smith

Todd Smith is a part-time sportswriter who spends too much time arguing on Twitter. What he really loves is eating poorly and watching football. He got his first Colts t-shirt in 1984 shortly after the Mayflower trucks arrived and has never given up on his hometown team. He also still holds to the belief that Kordell Stewart stepped out of the end zone and thus cheated the Colts.
