Las Vegas Raiders Coach Jon Gruden Steps Down After Emails Reveal He Called Biden A ‘Nervous Clueless P***y’Michael Cantrell
Jon Gruden, the head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders, made the announcement on Monday evening that he would be resigning from his position after a bunch of private emails were leaked that offended female referees, criticized homosexual football players, denounced the national anthem protests, used what is being called racially charged language, and then labeled President Joe a “p***y.”
The emails in question are from between 2011-2018, and in one of the emails, the coach called Biden, who was vice president at the time the message was written, a “nervous clueless p***y,” according to a report that was released by the New York Times.
The 2002 Super Bowl champion also called NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell a “fa****” and a “clueless anti-football p****.”take our poll - story continues below
Gruden also wrote that Goodell shouldn’t have pressured the then-St. Louis Rams to draft “queers,” a supposed reference to Michael Sam, an openly gay player selected in the 2014 draft.
Prior to his announcement, Gruden was ripped for his remarks, especially those referring to DeMaurice Smith, the executive director of the NFL Players Association, the report said.
“Dumboriss Smith has lips the size of Michelin tires,” he went on to say in one of the messages.
The NFL sent the Raiders additional Jon Gruden emails to review on top of the negative one that surfaced last week and, per sources around the league, the NFL is actively monitoring the situation and waiting to see how the team will handle the matter.

That particular comment has been deemed to be racist, with Gruden then getting slammed over and over by players, pundits, fans, and even the league itself.
“The NFL sent the Raiders additional Jon Gruden emails to review on top of the negative one that surfaced last week and, per sources around the league, the NFL is actively monitoring the situation and waiting to see how the team will handle the matter,” a source said to the folks over at ESPN .
“Thank you to all the players, coaches, staff, and fans of Raider Nation. I’m sorry, I never meant to hurt anyone,” Gruden stated.
