KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Jon Gruden says he hasn't received an offer to coach the Tennessee Volunteers as part of a deal that includes becoming part owner of the Cleveland Browns.

Memphis TV station WREG reported Gruden was weighing a Tennessee offer that would give him a piece of the Browns, who are owned by Jimmy Haslam - brother of Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam. Their father, Jim, played on Tennessee's 1951 national championship team.

Gruden, a former NFL coach and current ESPN analyst, said Wednesday on ESPN's "Mike & Mike In The Morning" show there is "no truth" to the report.

Browns spokesman Neal Gulkis says the report is "completely erroneous." Tennessee didn't immediately return a call from The Associated Press.

Tennessee is looking to replace Derek Dooley, who was fired on Nov. 18.
