Jon Gruden is back making headlines, as his longtime agent is calling out the NFL for their treatment of his client.

The former Las Vegas Raiders head coach was fired last year, following a surfacing of some old, offensive emails sent by the former head coach.

Gruden's agent believes it was a hit job.

"And it was 10 years ago. And then why Jon and why the Raiders? He wasn't even in the league at the time of those e-mails ... that's the tragedy of it," Bob LaMonte said. "You can say what you want, but if anyone really understands Jon, they know he's not a racist. That's quite obvious. No one would ever say that."

Gruden has now been out of the league for about a year, spending more time with friends and family.

The former NFL head coach is married to Cindy Gruden. The happy couple has been together since 1991.

Jon and Cindy met at the University of Tennessee.

The former NFL head coach was working for the Vols football program, while Cindy was a student.

Jon and Cindy dated for several years before getting married in 1991.

They have three children together - all boys.

Jon Gruden's NFL story is likely far from over.
