Anyone can feel however they like but there are facts that require zero feelings involved.
This staff has ties to Gruden that go far beyond typical 5 degrees of NFL separation stuff.
We all know Holmgren is a major player in Jerry's ear. And Gruden was a Holmgren disciple.
Gruden has won the division 5 times in 11 years as a head coach. And he has never been considered to have great talent on those teams. He has a .550 win clip in the NFL playoffs. With of course one Lombardi to his credit.
Kiffin and Callahan actually have VERY high opinions of Gruden as they have shared with the media.
Gruden is a volunteer coach at his sons High School. His son graduates this year.
