When Jon Gruden was released from his duties as Las Vegas Raiders head coach due to his inappropriate views in emails, everyone thought that was the end of his coaching career. Now, a no-profit want’s to make sure it happens.
According to TMZ, The National Organization For Women (NOW) released a statement about Gruden’s emails. The use of racist, homophobic and misogynistic language was so bad, that they’re urging NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to not allow him to walk another sideline as a head coach again.
“Jon Gruden should not be reinstated by the NFL,” NOW officials tell us. “If hired back, this once again proves the NFL values misogyny, homophobia and racism.”
Gruden was ousted as Raiders head coach in 2021 after offensive emails from 2011 to 2018 were made public. He has apologized several times for the content of his messages.
However, in a meeting with reporters last week, he called them all “shameful.” Gruden made a plea with NFL teams to give him one more look.
“I’ve made mistakes,” the 59-year-old said, “but I don’t think anybody in here hasn’t, and I just ask for forgiveness, and hopefully, I get another shot.”
With the NFL being heavily diverse, it’s highly unlikely he’ll get another coaching job with the organization. But stranger situations can happen. Thirsty will monitor the latest in Jon Gruden’s latest troubles.
