Jon Gruden is out as coach of the Las Vegas Raiders after email messages he sent prior to becoming employed in 2018 contained racist, homophobic and misogynistic opinions.

A human being familiar with the selection reported Gruden is stepping down after The New York Occasions described that Gruden commonly employed misogynistic and homophobic language directed at Commissioner Roger Goodell and many others in the NFL.

It was a speedy downfall for Gruden, who is in the fourth 12 months of a 10-yr, $100 million contract he signed with the Raiders in 2018. It begun on Friday when the Wall Street Journal noted that Gruden applied a racist time period to explain NFL union main DeMaurice Smith in a 2011 electronic mail to previous Washington govt Bruce Allen.

The email messages were discovered in a workplace misconduct investigation into the Washington Soccer Group but ended up costing Gruden his task.
