Jon Gruden Breaks His Silence: ‘The Truth Will Come Out’

Jon Gruden has spoken out against his email leak for the first time since releasing a statement to announce that he was turning in his resignation as the Raiders head coach.

Andrea Kremer of HBO recently revealed that her producer cold called Gruden in the aftermath of all of the email backlash. And the coach had a short, but telling, response.

“Maggie Burbank, who produced the story that we just did on Mark Davis, she actually called Gruden and he picked up the phone, much to I think her surprise,” Kremer said via PFT. “And he’s still in Las Vegas. . . . He says he’s letting the dust settle. He said, ‘People who know me know what I stand for for 58 years. I have a resume of 58 years.’ He said, ‘The truth will come out.’ It’s certainly cryptic.”


Perhaps Jon Gruden is contemplating if he’s going to engage in a lawsuit against the NFL into how and why the emails were leaked.

“Mark Davis has been severely impacted,” Kremer said. “And I’m not defending Mark Davis. I’m just pointing out a fact here. Dan Snyder continues on. The Washington Football Team continues on.”

In Jon Gruden’s defense, a former WFT cheerleader shared her belief that Dan Snyder leaked the Jon Gruden emails in a desperate attempt to clear his name from any wrongdoing.

“I believe Dan Snyder leaked these emails,” Melanie Coburn told Fox News. “I believe he’s trying to put all the blame on Bruce Allen. He sent over a dozen private investigators to my colleagues’ homes across the country … to show up on cheerleaders’ doorstops and ask them what their relationship with Bruce Allen was.”

Perhaps there’s so much more still to come from the email leak that resulted in Jon Gruden losing his job.
