Scratch Jon Gruden’s name off the Miami Dolphins head coach list.
Gruden has signed a 5 year extension to remain at ESPN as an analyst. The new contract begins in September 2012.
Joining ESPN in May 2009, Gruden has teamed with play-by-play commentator Mike Tirico and analyst Ron Jaworski on Monday Night Football.
“Our Monday Night Football crew is special, and to have the opportunity to continue to be a part of this team, working these big-time NFL prime time games every week on ESPN, I’m fired up,” said Gruden.
While Dolphins owner Stephen Ross has an interest in a big name coach, it looks like Gruden will not be available.
