Tampa Bay Bucs to induct Jon Gruden into team's Ring of Honor

TAMPA, Fla. – The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will induct former head coach Jon Gruden into the club’s Ring of Honor on Monday night.

Gruden, 54, will join John McKay as the second coach in team history to receive the honor.

During Monday night's halftime ceremony, Gruden is set to become the 11th member of the Bucs’ Ring of Honor. He coached the team from 2002-2008. Gruden also lead the Bucs to the franchise’s only Super Bowl title in 2002.

Bucs linebacker Kwon Alexander will pay homage to Gruden on Monday night. Alexander will wear special cleats made with Gruden’s face on them.

In May, the team announced Gruden and late owner Malcolm Glazer would be inducted this season. Glazer’s honor happened on Oct. 5.

Kickoff between the Bucs and Atlanta Falcons is set for 8:30 p.m. ET Monday at Raymond James Stadium. The game airs on ESPN.

Gruden has served as a color analyst for Monday Night Football since May 2009.
