King: Gruden the same guy as coach and broadcaster

Former Bucs quarterback and 1010 AM host Shaun King joined Florio on Thursday’s PFT Live to discuss the state of all things Bucs.

It was a great conversation that contained a rare moment in the show’s history: King actually seemed to change Florio’s mind about something. (Whether the Bucs should keep Raheem Morris.)

Florio also asked King if there is a disconnect between Jon Gruden the coach and Gruden the broadcaster.

“That’s absolutely who he is,” King said. “That’s probably been the most frustrating aspect for guys that have played for him. The coaches that have been successful in that league are honest with their players. You are dealing with grown men. . . .

“In private, everyone is great. Everyone is doing a good job. Then you’re gone. I think that’s created some dissension on some of the teams he’s coached.”
