Former NFL Head Coach/Monday Night Football Announcer- Jon Gruden aka Chucky 49 Today

 

Former NFL head coach with Oakland and Tampa Bay and current Monday Night Football announcer Jon Gruden aka “Chucky” turns 49 today. After leaving Oakland and leading Tampa Bay to the Super Bowl Championship Gruden’s teams failed to win a playoff game in the next 5ive years and he was fired. This will be his 4th year on Monday Night Football. At his age I wouldn’t rule out another shot at coaching but if I were Gruden [or Bill “The Chin” Cowher I think I’d stick with the announcing/commentating gig, good money and a lot less pressure plus a lot more free time} In his 4 years with the Oakland Raiders and 7 years with Tampa bay he had a record of 95-81 in the regular season and 5-4 in the playoffs. He also never met a quarterback that he didn’t like. Seemed like he was collecting quarterback’s in Tampa Bay. He won a Super Bowl with Brad Johnson which is impressive.  Happy Birthday Chucky.
