Re: The All Encompassing FIRE KUBIAK & REPLACEMENT thread II
A couple of years ago I talked with a guy who played under Gruden at Tampa Bay. He said that most of the players "managed to put up with him...and that's about it. He was kind of a hard-ass."
He went on to say "we wanted to like him, because he knew football. And he could have a good sense of humor. But he was really full of himself."
Gruden wouldn't be high on my wish list. But I do think his time at ESPN would help him if he coaches again. Might make him less of a "hard-ass."
