Chat with Orlando Predators coach Jay Gruden
The Predators entered the 2007 playoffs as the No. 5 seed in the National Conference, finishing with an 8-8 record. The team lost to No. 4 seed Philadelphia 41-26 last week in the first round of the playoffs. In Gruden's eight years of coaching the Predators, his teams have finished at .500 or better in all of them and have qualified for the playoffs in every season. Gruden, the younger brother of Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Jon Gruden, has led Orlando to two ArenaBowl titles - in 1998 and 2000.
Gruden left Orlando in 2002 to to serve as an offensive assistant coach with the Buccaneers, before returning to coach Orlando. Before Gruden entered the coaching ranks, he put together one of the greatest quarterback careers in the history of the AFL. He was named the league MVP in 1992 and was named to the All-Arena 10th anniversary team in 1996. In 1999, he was elected into the AFL Hall of Fame.
