If you thought Jon Gruden was going to just ride off quietly, you are mistaken.
Two weeks after Gruden resigned as the Las Vegas Raiders head coach, he is reportedly now weighing a lawsuit against the National Football League and commissioner Roger Goodell.
Gruden stepped down as head coach on Oct. 11 shortly after another wave of leaked emails detailed his use of racist, homophobic and sexist language with former Washington Football Team president Bruce Allen. The emails, uncovered as part of the investigation into Washington’s toxic team culture, unleashed a domino effect during the Raiders’ season.
The 58-year-old, who is unlikely to ever work in football again, already reached a settlement with Las Vegas dealing with the remainder of his contract. But he could now go after the league for the handling of the released emails and the subsequent fallout.
