    Raiders promote assistant coach and special teams coordinator Rich Bisaccia to interim head coach.

    Gruden would be a decent offensive coordinator. Bad head coach. Horrendous talent evaluator.


    But I never thought his ego would permit him to resign.

    I doubt he had much of a choice.

    I agree, this was very likely a "resign immediately or you are fired", and his ego wouldn't let him be fired given the choice.

    Man, the Gruden news just gets worse and worse. What a horrible person. Totally antithetical to the legacy of the Raiders.

    I'm not exactly sure what dropped when, but I didn't realize the scope of Gruden's awfulness. It wasn't just a racist email against a black dude, it was also crazy homophobic awfulness (complaining about drafting a "queer" like Michael Sam --- how do you think that makes Carl Nassib feel?), misogyny, and, perhaps the worst thing of all, sending nude pictures of cheerleaders that were taken without their consent to their employer. I bet there's a bunch more, too. Much of it is just casual bro-culture bigotry, but some of it is much worse.

    Ah, yeah that all came out before he resigned.

    For the original part (racism), he apologized to the team and it looked like he was going keep coaching. When the next set of emails dropped it was over.

    I thought you were commenting that there was something new AFTER the resignation. I misread it.

    How did they get naked (I read topless) pictures of cheerleaders without their consent? Wouldn't that be grounds for criminal charges?
