LAS VEGAS, NEVADA - OCTOBER 10: Head coach Jon Gruden of the Las Vegas Raiders reacts during a game against the Chicago Bears at Allegiant Stadium on October 10, 2021 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Bears defeated the Raiders 20-9.

Jon Gruden is no longer stranger to controversy. Not even 24 hours since his resignation from the Raiders, Gruden Tampa Bay Buccaneers made a statement about removing him from the Ring of Honor.

Currently, Jon Gruden holds two major feats in the Buccaneers franchise. He holds the most wins of any head coach and is one of the only 2 super bowls the Buccaneers have. The story broke early over the weekend as the New York Times released emails Gruden had been sending throughout his time in the NFL. According to the New York Times, this is not a one-time thing as hundreds of emails have been sent. Gruden Gruden announced early today via Twitter that he would be resigning as coach from the Raiders.

 

This, however, was not the final nail in the legacy that was Jon Gruden. As Tampa released this statement today:  “The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have advocated for purposeful change in the areas of race relations, gender equality, diversity, and inclusion for many years. While we acknowledge Jon Gruden’s contributions on the field, his actions go against our core values as an organization. Therefore, he will no longer continue to be a member of the Buccaneers Ring of Honor.”

The Bucs are not the only ones with things to say against Josh, as Running Back Josh Jacobs had this to say during a recent press conference.
