    Even if he did he really only had 2 years. I know it's his own fault he left, but that team had some major personnel issues. In 2005 he brought in Ronnie Brown and Matt Roth in the first 2 rounds, not bad at all. He also brought in Channing Crowder and Travis Daniels. Both of whom played pretty well while under Saban. QB was the biggest issue in my opinion.

    I think Saban is a good coach. The Browns are the perfect kind of team for him. He doesn't have to build it, the talent is already there for the most part. He just has to come in and coach them. For the most part the guys are all really young too, he wouldn't have to deal with any angry vets who might butt heads with him.

    Im kinda skeptical about Saban but also intrigued not sure how he would fare again, only positive i could see is that he used to be D coordinator here so he may understand what hes getting into if he does decide to coach here....He knows damn well Cleveland Fans wont take that shit just sliding out in the middle of the night.....

    Knoxville, TN-News Channel 3 has learned former NFL coach Jon Gruden has a contract offer in hand from the University of Tennessee and a decision could be made as early as Wednesday. Part of the offer is Gruden getting a piece of the NFL’s Cleveland Browns, who were recently bought by Jim Haslam, one of UT’s biggest boosters who played on the Vols’ national championship teams in the early fifties.

    Maybe Gruden wants to buy a part of the team and Haslam wont let him until he coaches for Tennessee.

    The article is clearly talking about ownership in the Browns. A steak.

    Oh I see, a stake in the Browns is part of his compensation if he takes the job at Tennessee. That doesn't seem legal to me, but I'm sure it is or it wouldn't happen.

    Apologies, my post seemed a little snide.

    That's something that's hard to turn down. You know nobody else is offering that. Even a sliver of ownership in an NFL team is priceless.

    Side note, if that's what he'd toss into the deal to get Gruden to be the Tennessee coach, what on earth is he going to offer the next Browns coach?

    You've got to respect the integrity of the news station that didn't even check the legality of the situation before running with the story.
    Manziel's reps also insist it's a hoax -- and he's never made a penis video on "It's a Small World" or any other Disney ride.

    The report does bring up a potential road block to this ever coming to fruition. Gruden may still be owed money from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from his time as head coach that ended with his firing in 2008. Apparently the league is looking into the conflict of owning a part of one team while potentially still getting paid from another franchise.

    Here’s another possible hiccup. According to John Infante, who worked as a NCAA compliance officer at Colorado State University and ran the Bylaw Blog for the NCAA website, NCAA rules would prohibit this transaction unless the ownership stake was first gifted to the University of Tennessee. He says there is no rule prohibiting coaches being involved with pro teams but rather the issue has to do with outside compensation.

    This deal seems a little too ridiculous to actually come together in the end. But with SEC football, there seems to be no limit to the distance schools will go to try and put the best possible team on the field. So maybe it’s not completely out of the question after all.
    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...to-coach-vols/

    There's always a way around the rule. Phil Knight doesn't just have Nike churning out uniforms for Oregon every week, sending them directly to the locker room in a big box with his compliments. That is essentially what he does, but it's not exactly what he does. He sends a dumptruck of money to the university, and they know damn well what to do with it. Haslem can easily donate money to the university, which they will use to hire the coach, and Gruden can then call up Jimmy to buy a slice of the team.

    Whether it's true or not, who knows. We'll find out if he starts showing up at Browns games.
