Chucky Lands A New JobAugust 29th, 2012
The most famous former Hooters employee likely never to have worn a bra is reconnecting with his ex-employer.
Soon you’ll be seeing Jon Gruden pitching wings, beer and good times for the famous 430-plus-location chain, reports Nation’s Restaurant News.
JoeBucsFan.com has confirmed that Gruden will be seen in a variety of Hooters advertisements, including an Internet campaign on this website.
Gruden worked at Hooters on Hillsborough Avenue in Tampa during his college days.
“I was good at shaking the wings and shucking the oysters. If you’re good, you can shuck two or three dozen in an hour. . . You want to make sure the batter is evenly distributed. You don’t want to bruise the bird,” Gruden told the St. Pete Times in 2003.
It’s unclear whether Gruden quit that job or was fired with three years left on his kitchen-boy contract.
Joe doesn’t get how Chucky will attract more football fans to Hooters than, say, a gorgeous Hooters girl, but it’ll be fun to see how he attacks his new gig.
