Jerry Jones building Cowboys staff for Jon Gruden hire?

09:03 AM ET 01.26 | Jerry Jones is sure taking care of a lot of Jon Gruden's work for him as he assembles a coaching staff in Dallas now built around coach Jason Garrett. Whispers have been that Jones wants to hire Gruden out of ESPN's broadcast booth and bring him to Dallas. There is certainly circumstantial evidence in place right now that would lead you to wonder long and hard about the possibility. Monte Kiffin has been hired as defensive coordinator and he has brought with him Rod Marinelli to run the defensive line after Jones ordered Rob Ryan be fired. Bill Callahan has been giving play calling duties that have been stripped from Garrett, who was also forced to fire his brother John, the tight ends coach. The Cowboys have now hired Rich Bisaccia to coach special teams. He's at Auburn and also worked for Gruden previously in Tampa. If the Cowboys are successful in landing Bisaccia, they will have a good portion of the old band Gruden worked with back together. They will also have the most talented quarterback Gruden has worked with -- Tony Romo -- since an aging Rich Gannon.

1. Why would Gruden want to work with another prima donna?

Wouldn't Gruden want to hire his own staff?

I don't believe it.
