In the emails that were released by The New York Times late Monday night, Gruden referred to President Joe Biden in 2012 as a “nervous clueless pu**y” and he called Roger Goodell a “fa**ot” and a “clueless anti football pu**y.” He also used homophobic language when talking about the Rams being pressured into drafting Michael Sam.
The emails released by the NYT come after Gruden referred to NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith as having “lips the size of Michelin tires.”

This is a rapidly changing situation, and I’m honestly stunned that Gruden has agreed to leave the NFL for emails that were sent before he ever became a coach.
According to the NYT report, the emails were sent between 2010 and 2018.
