Report: Raiders, Jon Gruden expected to reach contract settlement
The Las Vegas Raiders and former head coach Jon Gruden are expected to work out a financial settlement following his resignation last week, NFL Network reported.
Gruden signed a 10-year, $100 million contract in 2018 to return to coaching. He had been ESPN’s analyst on “Monday Night Football.”
He resigned Monday after leaked emails revealed derogatory comments he made about commissioner Roger Goodell, players union chief DeMaurice Smith and various team owners as well as statements categorized as misogynistic and homophobic.
Per the NFL Network report, Gruden, 58, has about $40 million unpaid on his deal.
Gruden had a 22-31 record over the past three-plus seasons in his second stint with the Raiders, including 3-2 this season. He coached the Raiders from 1998-2001, then moved on to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 2002-08. Overall, he has a 117-112 NFL coaching record and led Tampa Bay to its first Super Bowl win in 2002.
