UPDATE: Jon Gruden signs 5 year extension with ESPN

By Marc A. Greenberg

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.
