Former Las Vegas Raiders Head Coach Jon Gruden is fighting back.
Jon Gruden is is suing the NFL and Commissioner Roger Goodell.
Gruden left his job following emails that exposed him as racist, misogynist, and homophobic. The trifecta.
Via Las Vegas Review Journal:
“Through a malicious and orchestrated campaign, the NFL and Commissioner Roger Goodell sought to destroy the career and reputation of Jon Gruden, the former head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders,” the lawsuit filed Thursday in Clark County District Court stated.

“When their initial salvo did not result in Gruden’s firing or resignation, Defendants ratcheted up the pressure by intimating that further documents would become public if Gruden was not fired,” the lawsuit stated. “They followed through with this threat by leaking another batch of documents to the New York Times for an October 11, 2021 article. On October 7, 2021, Jon Gruden was the head coach of the Raiders on a 10-year, $100-million contract. By October 11, 2021, he had been forced to resign.”
It definitely felt like someone targeted Gruden with the release of his emails.
Was the NFL and Goodell somehow involved in trying to oust Gruden from his job? We’ll find out.
Gruden was in the middle of a ten year, $100 million dollar contract with the Raiders.
Before then he was the voice of Monday Night Football.
