Source: Louisville targets Jon Gruden

Sources at the University of Louisville have informed the National Football Post that Jon Gruden will be the school’s No. 1 choice to replace Steve Kragthorpe as head coach if Kragthorpe is fired, as expected.

The Cardinals are 2-3 heading into this week’s game at UConn. Kragthrope is 13-16 in his three years at Louisville after taking over for Bobby Petrino. Louisville athletic director Tom Jurich believes his school can compete for a national championship, and luring a coach with Gruden’s resume and experience would be a giant step in that direction.

Gruden’s brother Jay is a former Louisville quarterback and led the team to an 8-3 record in his senior season.

Jon Gruden was fired as head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in January but has made a successful transition to the broadcast booth, working as an analyst on ESPN’s Monday Night Football telecasts. He is also rumored to be a candidate for the Washington Redskins’ head job if owner Daniel Snyder opts to fire Jim Zorn, whose team is off to a 2-3 start.
