Report: Rumors of Gruden joining Cowboys termed "ridiculous"

The SportsXchange

The rumor that former Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Jon Gruden might be added to the Dallas Cowboys' coaching staff is "ridiculous," a source told ESPN's Ed Werder.

Gruden has worked as a television analyst since being fired by the Bucs after the 2008 season, and there have been reports that he might be interested in returning to coaching.

The fact that Dallas has hired several former Gruden assistant coaches -- Monte Kiffin (defensive coordinator),Rod Marinelli (defensive line coach) ), Rich Bisaccia (special teams coach) and Bill Callahan (offensive coordinator) -- led to speculation that the Cowboys might be pursuing Gruden as well.

But according to the ESPN report, Gruden is not part of the Cowboys' plans.
