Freeman: “You knew Jon Gruden would say ‘hell no’?”
Sapp: “Gruden told me hell no the day he went and got an interview. Let’s not even talk about that. The backdoor deals and foolishness that goes along with that.
“You don’t call someone and say ‘I want the job’ and have them fire their own coach and then don’t take the job. You just don’t do that.
“I don’t mind you being a pretty girl and being courted and kissed, but court and kiss on your own time. There’s a certain fraternity that you don’t break.
“It’s like Jim Mora, Jr. and Pete Carroll in Seattle, you don’t do that.
“When someone has a job, you let them (Miami) go through the process of firing that person and then you drop your name in the hat.
“You don’t call and get (Miami Athletic Director) Kirby (Hocutt) all excited that he’s about to get you … and then Kirby can’t deliver.”
Keep in mind, Gruden and Sapp have long had a relationship documented as rocky at times. Though it’s almost impossible to believe Sapp would make up such an incredibly serious charge about his former coach at Tampa Bay.
