Jon Gruden Out as Raiders Head Coach Following Email Probe
What started as one email from 2011 quickly turned into a career-ending week for Raiders head coach Jon Gruden. The New York Times released a report that showed multiple emails over a seven-year period that included misogynistic, racial and anti-gay language. Las Vegas team owner Al Davis reportedly met with Gruden on Monday following the release, and Gruden resigned a few hours later.
“I love the Raiders and do not want to be a distraction. Thank you to all the players, coaches, staff, and fans of Raider Nation. I’m sorry, I never meant to hurt anyone.” — Jon Gruden
