Jon Gruden: ESPN’s effusive Monday Night Football analyst (“This guy!” “That guy!”), could be headed to San Francisco to coach the 49ers in 2012, according to his high school football-playing son, Deuce. In a podcast with The Sporting Rave, Deuce, a junior who plays QB and LB said (around the 5:00 mark), “he was going to let me finish high school … they were talking about going to San Francisco, but that’ll probably be in the next two years … or maybe Cleveland.” Does this mean the 49ers or Browns would be willing to give Mike Singletary and Eric Mangini (respectively), another year to get to the playoffs? Seems fair. Jay Glazer linked the 49ers and Gruden Sunday on Fox Sports. [The Sporting Rave]
