Fans can call the coach and press 1 for “The Audiblizer” and select from a series of pertinent Corona or football questions to get Gruden’s pre-recorded advice on their issues. Or, they can press 2, answer a series of questions and receive their game day nickname.

The Hotline will be featured in a three TV spots and 3 three online social and pre-roll videos airing during the pre-season through November, 2017. In addition to TV and social, the Hotline will also be featured in retail point-of-sale, and, when dialed (and you press 3), will also offer consumers the chance to win a trip to Coach Gruden’s infamous “Gruden QB Camp” in Orlando, FL. as part of a national sweepstakes.
