LAS VEGAS, Nev. (WTOK) - Jon Gruden is out as Las Vegas Raiders head coach, according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.

Gruden informed his staff Monday that he plans to resign as the Las Vegas Raiders Head Coach. Pelissero further added that Gruden spoke with Raiders owner Mark Davis a short time ago to inform Davis of his decision.

The news comes just after a New York Times article showing Gruden used racist, misogynistic and homophobic language in numerous emails during a seven-year period while employed at ESPN.
