Why Bill Cowher and Jon Gruden are not Miami's coaches
My exact thoughts on Gruden. Once he is smart enough to realize that he needs a real GM to pick his players, he can be a very good head coach. He dismantled that top rated Bucs defense fast enough ... .and never found a franchise quarterback.

For those wondering why Miami didn't do whatever it took to get Bill Cowher, the Dolphins only had strong interest in an offensive-minded coach and Cowher's forte is defense.
Though Jon Gruden's background is on offense, the Dolphins weren't interested. One NFL official (not with Miami) said this is a concern for some teams: Gruden wants a lot of money, isn't strong on personnel decisions and can quickly change his mind on players, which can be frustrating for his personnel people.
