Gruden Shuts Down Philly Talk

The internet was buzzing with Jon Gruden to Philly talk last night.  Those reports are false according to Chucky himself, via Pro Football Talk:
After the Philadelphia Daily News reported that Gruden informed Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie, through an intermediary, that he is interested in the Eagles’ job, Gruden texted longtime Philadelphia broadcaster Howard Eskin to deny the report.

“I’m not interested,” Gruden told Eskin.
It was hard to believe he was interested.  If ESPN isn't tired of him yet what would be the motivation for him to leave?

He's making serious bank and not working near the hours required of an NFL head coach.  If I were him I'd do the ESPN gig until they physically forced me to leave.
