As the search for the next University of Tennessee head football coach continues, Jon Gruden took a bit of ribbing from his fellow Monday Night Football commentator Sean McDonough on Monday night.

Gruden’s name has come up several times as speculation continues as to who will be the next coach.

McDonough and Gruden briefly brought up the search during Monday night’s NFL game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Cincinnati Bengals.

“Well if you had just answered the call and said yes, you could have saved them an awful lot of trouble there on Rocky Top,” said McDonough.
