Jon Gruden, the former head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders, resigned following revelations that he used anti-gay, misogynistic, and racist language in several emails. However, he said that his side of this story would one day be published.

Andrea Kremer was interviewed on the Real Sports Podcast by Gruden. He told Andrea that "the truth will come out" (h/t Mike Florio, Pro Football Talk).

"Maggie Burbank, the producer of the Mark Davis story, actually called Gruden, and he answered the phone, much her surprise. He's still in Las Vegas. . . . He said he is letting the dust settle. He stated, "People who know me for 58 years know what I stand behind." I have a resume that spans 58 years. He stated, "The truth will be revealed." It is certainly cryptic."

According to Katherine Rosman and Ken Belson of the New York Times, Gruden sent emails between 2011-2018 to Bruce Allen, former Washington Football Team President.

These emails were part the NFL's investigation into workplace misconduct at the Washington Football Team's top office.

Gruden issued a statement when he resigned, saying that he had resigned as the Head Coach of the Las Vegas Raiders. I love the Raiders, and don't want to be a distraction. We are grateful to Raider Nation's players, coaches, staff, fans, and all those who support them. Sorry, I didn't mean to hurt anyone.

Rich Bisaccia was named interim head coach for the Raiders.

He was the one who led them to victory against the Denver Broncos by leading them to 34-24 victory on Sunday.
