FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. - An offer has reportedly been made for a new head coach at the University of Arkansas.
Jim Harris, THV 11's affiliate sports reporter, says the university has offered Jon Gruden the head coach position for the Razorbacks football team.
Gruden is currently with ESPN and serves as an analyst for Monday Night Football.
Harris doesn't expect Gruden to take the offer, putting the odds at "one in 10 or even one in 20." He said Gruden may have shown a slight bit of interest and that "Arkansas is swinging for the fences and making an offer."
Longtime ArkansasSports360 editor and former Arkansas beat writer Jim Harris also tweeted as much late Monday: "My sources say Arkansas has made an offer to ESPN pro analyst Jon Gruden."
