Leaks in the Wall Street Journal and New York Times precipitated Jon Gruden’s resignation from the Raiders
When Jon Gruden was a leading broadcaster on ESPN, providing full color commentary during “Monday Night Football,” he also sent profane and hateful emails to friends.
Beaton explained Friday that an NFL investigation into “professional misconduct in the Washington football team” uncovered “more than 650,000 emails” which, in the league’s terms, ” raised issues beyond the scope of this investigation “. One problem: Gruden’s messages to the president of the Washington team at the time.
“I never meant to hurt anyone”
In a statement, Gruden said he loved the Raiders and didn’t want to be “a distraction.” He added: “I’m sorry, I never meant to hurt anyone.”
