Former Las Vegas Raiders head coach Jon Gruden revealed last month that he has some extreme regrets about his scandal involving emails that had racist, homophobic, and misogynistic language in them, and revealed that he hopes that he gets another chance in the NFL.
“I’m ashamed about what has come about in these emails, and I’ll make no excuses for it, it’s shameful,” said Gruden. However, while the disgraced former NFL head coach claims he won’t make excuses for his actions, he will make buts about it. “BUT, I am a good person. I believe that. I go to church, I’ve been married for 31 years, I got three great boys, I still love football. I’ve made some mistakes, but I don’t think anybody in here hasn’t and I just ask for forgiveness, and hopefully, I get another shot.”
Despite these comments, one Women’s Organization has made it clear that they feel Gruden should not be given another chance in the NFL as a head coach.
The National Organization For Women (NOW) released a statement on Tuesday on Gruden, saying that NFL commissioner Roger Goodell should push for a permanent ban of Gruden from the NFL.
“Jon Gruden should not be reinstated by the NFL,” NOW officials told TMZ on Tuesday. “If hired back, this once again proves the NFL values misogyny, homophobia and racism.”
Chances are he won’t be receiving another NFL opportunity, but an outright ban from the league has not been something that the NFL has made any indication of doing so anytime soon.
