Tennessee desperately wants Jon Gruden to become their next coach. The school is apparently prepared to do anything to lure him to the job, so they have decided to offer him a piece of the Cleveland Browns. Wait, what?
WREG-TV in Memphis claims Vols’ boosters have offered Jon Gruden part-ownership of the Cleveland Browns to take UT job: bit.ly/1198owR

If your mind hurts, you are not alone in this. A big booster of the school happens to be the current owner of the Browns. In order to his college team get better, he would be willing to give away some of the team to Gruden. If your mind is not blown after this, I am shocked.
Of course, this could be a giant sham. That being said, is anything really off the table these days? College football has become so big that schools are willing to do anything to turn a profit. It is all about the money and Gruden at UT could bring in more money for the school than you can imagine.
I am not even sure if this entire process would be legal. It is a giant mess right now and it could only get messier before things finally wrap. This is probably the oddest rumor out there and that takes talent to create.
If the report is wrong, there are going to be some very mad people out there. Got to love football.
