Sapp says Miami fired Shannon after Gruden said 'I want the job'

Maybe those Jon Gruden-to-Miami rumors weren’t as far-fetched as some may have believed them to be based on the comments from former Hurricane and Tampa Bay Buccaneer Warren Sapp.

Sapp was a guest Thursday on 790 The Ticket’s “The Sports Brothers” show with Ed Freeman and Jeff Fox in Miami, and the former defensive tackle revealed some interesting information about the departure of Randy Shannon from Coral Gables and the potential interest of Gruden.

Sapp, who played under the former Bucs head coach and had an up-and-down relationship with the ESPN MNF analyst while he was in Tampa, certainly raises some questions with his comments.
