Gruden out as Raiders head coach … After a wild weekend when some old emails were leaked in which he used a racial trope to describe NFLPA Executive Director DeMaurice Smith, Jon Gruden has resigned as head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders. Gruden might have been able to survive the Smith insult, which was from ten years ago, but there are articles this day in both the Wall Street Journal and New York Times detailing other memos sent by Gruden which included several racist, homophobic and misogynistic references. Assistant head coach/special teams coach Rich Bisaccia is expected to take over on an interim basis for the 3-2 Raiders who would be in the playoffs if the post-season started this week.
