John Gruden, who returned to coach the Las Vegas Raiders in 2018 on a 10-year $ 100 million contract, is retiring after allegedly sending numerous offensive emails that included racist, homophobic, and misogynistic language.
John Gruden was labeled “clueless” after a slew of offensive emails allegedly sent by the former Las Vegas Raiders head coach led to his resignation on Monday.
Gruden apologized and said he didn’t remember writing an email about Smith, but after coaching his team in a 20-9 home defeat to the Chicago Bears on Sunday, Gruden resigned Monday night as details were released. other emails.
Reacting to news about Good morning football, presenter Peter Schrager said: “The New York Times the report is alarming.
“What makes me crazy is that the Wall Street Journal came out on Friday, the team was told on Thursday that it was coming out, and yet this guy was coaching this weekend!
“It shows the invincibility that many of these people have enjoyed for decades in the NFL, corporate America and many other places.
“I would like to think that this is a bygone era, but it is not. It still exists, this invincibility, this feeling: “I cannot be touched, and this is how you can speak.”
New York Times reported that the NFL, in the midst of an unrelated investigation, flagged many of the emails Gruden wrote.
He allegedly used derogatory terms to express his disagreement with women serving as NFL referees, league compilation or inclusion of gay players, and player protest when the national anthem was played before the game.
Gruden also allegedly used profanity to describe NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, including anti-gay insults, and used other anti-gay insults when he wrote about Michael Sam, the first openly homosexual player chosen by the NFL team.
