Chuckie Not Headed to Miami (At Least Not To Coach The Hurricanes)

According to ACC Now, Jon Gruden apologized Thursday for widespread speculation about his candidacy to be Miami's next football coach and said he's willing to help the Hurricanes find the right person for the job. (Huh?) (Apparently, so is Donald Trump who thought they should hire Mike Leach, but that’s another story. If you care, Google it.)

The former Super Bowl-winning coach and current ESPN analyst reiterated his commitment to "Monday Night Football" for the second time this week, and the network repeated that it expects Gruden to at least complete his contract, which runs through 2011.

Gruden had talks with Miami throughout the week about replacing fired coach Randy Shannon, and a person familiar with the talks told The Associated Press on Sunday that Gruden was presented with "parameters" of a contract within 24 hours of Shannon's dismissal. Gruden met face to face with Hurricanes athletic director Kirby Hocutt on Wednesday.
