Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden confirmed he will interview for head-coaching jobs but intends to stay in Cincinnati.

“I got called to interview for these jobs. I figure I better say yes or they’ll quit asking me,” Gruden told the team’s website. Last year, he turned down interview requests and signed a three-year extension with Cincinnati. 

The Cardinals and Eagles received permission to interview Gruden, who said he wants to stay with the Bengals.

“I think it will be a great experience and it’s exciting. I have every intention of coming back here. We’ve got a great group of guys here. We’re excited for the future here,” he said.

The Bengals made the playoffs for the second year in a row, but fell in the wild-card game to the Texans.

“When you enter the coaching profession you necessarily don’t do it to be an assistant your whole life. Eventually you'd like to be top dog and run your own ship. When the time's right,” he said. “Every team has their issues and their problems. That's why they're looking. Eventually when the time is right, hopefully I'll get a chance. If not this year, or next year, or the year after. I'll be happy here because it's a great place."
