Jon Gruden (the disgraced ex-coach of the Las Vegas Raiders) reportedly said there was more to Jon Gruden’s racist, homophobic, and misogynistic email messages that were published in different media outlets.
Longtime NFL journalist Andrea Kremer revealed in the latest episode of HBO’s “Real Sports Podcast” that a producer called Gruden and the former coach picked up.

Kremer stated that Maggie Burbank (who produced the Mark Davis story), actually called Gruden, and he answered the phone. This was much more surprising than she thought. “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.”
Gruden hasn’t spoken publicly since he stepped down from the Raiders job over two weeks ago.
I have decided to resign as the Head Coach for the Las Vegas Raiders. “I love the Raiders, and I don’t want to distract from them. Thanks to Raider Nation’s players, coaches and staff. I’m sorry, I never meant to hurt anyone,” he said on Oct. 11.
JON GRUDEN RESIGNS A RAIDERS HEADCOACH AFTER HOMOPHOBIC & MISOGYNISTIC EMAILS ARE REVEALED
Gruden in at least one email, according to the Times, called NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell an anti-gay slur and a “clueless anti-football p—y” and argued that Goodell shouldn’t have allegedly pressured then-St. Louis Rams coach Jeff Fisher to draft “queers,” in reference to former NFL defensive lineman Michael Sam, who was the first openly gay player to be selected in the draft.
The email appeared to show a complete disconnect from Gruden’s messaging when his own player Carl Nassib came out as gay before the start of the 2021 season and became the first active openly gay NFL player.
The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and others obtained emails that contained disparaging comments about female referees as well as emails with Bruce Allen, former president of the Washington Football Team.

Gruden claimed that before the second release, he was not a racist.
