Tennessee offers Gruden $10 million to coach?

Could this be true? Where is Finfinder? I know he is a big Tennessee fan. Maybe

Tennessee’s interest in Jon Gruden reportedly is serious.

As reported by The Read Optional’s Oliver Connolly and Trey Wallace, Tennessee officials have offered the Super Bowl-winning coach “over $10 million a year” to lead the Volunteers. Connolly and Wallace also report the Vols are eyeing TCU’s Gary Patterson, Louisville’s Bobby Petrino and Purdue’s Jeff Brohm.

Of course, that $10 million-a-year figure is significant. Would it be enough to lure Gruden to Knoxville to lead the Vols, if Tennessee moves past coach Butch Jones soon?

Also, those other names that Connolly and Wallace report are interesting, especially Petrino. Seeing the coach at Tennessee would be fascinating, given Petrino’s abrupt end at Arkansas following the 2011 season. Tennessee is 3-5 after losing to Kentucky on Saturday.
