ESPN NFL analyst Jon Gruden recently traveled back to Florida to speak at this year’s Don Shula NFL High School Coach of the Year Award ceremony that occurred over the last weekend in January in Orlando. Gruden got a chance to talk about many of the highlights of his coaching career, as well as some of the biggest, most difficult, and most rewarding moments throughout his time with the teams.
The Sandusky, Ohio native came from a family heavily involved in the sports world, as his father was a former professional football scout for Tampa Bay and also served as an assistant to the then head coach of Notre Dame. Gruden eventually went on to school at Muskingum College in Dayton, and afterwards he went on to serve various coaching positions with a number of professional teams. Over the course of his career, he also was head coach for the Oakland Raiders and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. In fact, he won the Super Bowl with Tampa Bay in 2003 and retired in 2008.
Gruden showed up at the Don Shula NFL High School Coach of the Year Award ceremony that happened during the last weekend of January, just a couple of days ago. It was a great experience for all, and the former coach got to share some words of expertise.
