Dousing speculation he plans to return to the sideline, former Buccaneers coach Jon Gruden told the Tampa Tribune he is remaining with ESPN as an analyst for its "Monday Night Football" broadcasts. "I love my job and I'll be back at ESPN with the guys," Gruden said. "I'm not going anywhere." Gruden, 48, has spent the past three NFL seasons in the ESPN booth with fellow analyst Ron Jaworski and play-by-play man Mike Tirico, receiving two Sports Emmy nominations. In October, Gruden signed a 5-year extension with ESPN.
