Raiders coach Jon Gruden informed the team of his resignation Monday night. -- The New York Times has released new Jon Gruden emails that reveal rampant homophobia and misogyny.
The emails, which surfaced in a different investigation than the one that revealed Gruden's racist language, were sent in a period between 2011-18. As was the case with the racist email, these new emails were part of a chain with ex-Washington Football Team executive Bruce Allen, one of Gruden's former bosses. They feature Gruden using a homophobic slur to describe commissioner Roger Goodell, his complaints about the league hiring female referees, and his disgust at the St. Louis Rams drafting openly gay pass rusher Michael Sam. They are shocking in both their insensitivity and retrograde thinking. Gruden was already barely weathering the storm from last week's scandal. It is impossible to see how he survives this with his job. Stay tuned.
