Jon Gruden quits Raiders after homophobic, racist and misogynistic emails

The Guardian says Jon Gruden has resigned as Las Vegas Raiders head coach after further emails emerged in which he used misogynistic and homophobic language.

“I love the Raiders and do not want to be a distraction,” Gruden said in a statement on Monday night. “Thank you to all the players, coaches, staff, and fans of Raider Nation. I’m sorry, I never meant to hurt anyone.”

Gruden had previously said he didn’t have “a blade of racism” in his body after the Wall Street Journal reported last week that he had described NFL Players Association executive director DeMaurice Smith, who is Black, as having “lips the size of michellin tires” in an email 10 years ago. Gruden said he regularly used the phrase “rubber lips” to describe anyone he considered a liar.
