Jon Gruden resigned as Las Vegas Raiders head coach after an explosive report in the New York Times revealed he used homophobic and misogynistic language in emails over a seven-year period.
Only a few days after a first email leak revealed Gruden using racist language, more emails were uncovered showing Gruden mocked the drafting of the first openly gay player in NFL history, criticized the emergence of women in the NFL as officials and called for the dismissal of players protesting the playing of the national anthem, according to the Times.
NFL Network was first to report that Gruden, 58, informed the Raiders of his plans to step down. Gruden signed a 10-year, $100 million contract with the Raiders in 2018. Las Vegas is currently 3-2 and in third place in the AFC West.
