Former Las Vegas Raiders head coach Jon Gruden is suing the National Football League and commissioner Roger Goodell.
Gruden, 58, who resigned last month after the spread of homophobic and racist emails, filed a complaint Thursday in Clark County, Nevada.

The 21-page complaint, obtained by the Las Vegas Revue‘s David Ferrera says that Gruden was forced to resign and alleging that “through a malicious and orchestrated campaign, the NFL and Commissioner Roger Goodell sought to destroy the career and reputation of Jon Gruden, the former head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders ”.

Gruden’s lawsuit alleges the league imposed an additional leak of documents to pressure Gruden to resign.

“When their initial salvo did not result in Gruden’s dismissal or resignation, the defendants stepped up the pressure by suggesting that other documents would become public if Gruden was not fired,” the lawsuit says. “They followed up on this threat by leaking another batch of documents to the New York Times for an October 11, 2021 article. On October 7, 2021, Jon Gruden was head coach of the Raiders with a $ 100 million contract. over 10 years. On October 11, 2021, he was forced to resign.
