Gruden was a good OC , but then he really wasnít ready for HC, especially when the person making the personnel decisions was a total idiot (Bruce Allen). Gruden has a good pedigree with prior HC he worked with, a good run as OC with the Bengals, but he was anchored DOWN by Allenís personnel mistakes AND he never really nailed down a very good DC.

His OC run with the Bengals was not that great. But his last name was.
And Zorn wasnít an unknown commodity. He was a player coach in the league for 100 years. Gruden was a mediocre OC and an awful HC and there are literally hundreds of people out there who are better than him. But they arenít part of the old boys network.
