On Monday night, Jon Gruden informed the team that he will resign as the team’s head coach after a New York Times piece was written in regards to emails he sent back in 2011.
The piece showed a number of concerning emails with vulgar criticism directed at Roger Goddell, President Barack Obama and more. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Raiders received word of these emails on Friday but did not take action over the weekend and Gruden coached in Week 5. The team does have several former head coaches on the roster to take his place for the rest of the season. Look for either Gus Bradley, Rod Marinelli or Tom Cable to be named the interim coach for the rest of the season, the story speculated.
