The Monday Night Football color analyst appeared on the phone as a guest on Mike & Mike in the Morning on ESPN Radio Wednesday.

"I haven't talked to anybody", Gruden said. "All I really have in my life is my family and football", Gruden said.

Jon Gruden has grown used to addressing rumors about his potential return to coaching, and the latest comments the ESPN broadcaster made on the topic will do nothing to cool the annual speculation. That's about it. I'm real sensitive to the coaches that are out there coaching, so I don't speculate. I just love football, I'm trying to hang onto the job I have. I'm very fortunate to be with the people I'm with.

Gruden spent seven seasons with Tampa Bay and coached the Buccaneers to a win in Super Bowl XXXVII. He reportedly earns approximately $6 million per year for his Monday Night Football gig.

Multiple reports have even surfaced that Gruden has reached out to former Tennessee players and coaches about the possibility of joining his staff should he return to Knoxville.

The Volunteers are looking for a new head coach after officially parting ways with Butch Jones on Sunday. Until his replacement is hired, the #Grumors mill will continue to churn.
