Jay Gruden, a former Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator and Washington Football Team head coach who worked last season as the Jacksonville Jaguars' offensive coordinator, indicated in a story by The Athletic's Ben Standig that he won't be coaching during the upcoming NFL season and would like to give broadcasting a shot.
And Gruden said - per Standig - that he could do a better job than CBS' Tony Romo - who will call Super Bowl LV on Sunday alongside Jim Nantz and Tracy Wolfson - at predicting which plays will happen, as Romo is known to do.
"I could do it every time," Gruden said. "He's only right like 30 percent of the time. Those are usually pretty obvious, I mean. Nobody talks about the times when he's wrong, but when he's right, 'Holy cow, he's a genius.' Oh, come on, man. Sure, it's a run. Nope, it's a pass. Sorry, I was wrong."
Gruden was the Bengals' offensive coordinator under head coach Marvin Lewis from 2011 to 2013. He was hired as Washington's head coach in Jan. 2014 and dismissed in Oct. 2019 after his team started the season 0-5.
He was 35-49-1 as Washington's head coach.
