Former NFL head coach Jon Gruden made headlines on Wednesday, as he secured a major win in his attempt to sue the National Football League over his firing.

Gruden, who was ousted from his Raiders head coaching job last fall following an email leak to the Wall Street Journal, will get to move forward with his lawsuit, a judge ruled.

The former NFL head coach has maintained a relatively low profile since his ousting from the Raiders. Gruden's old emails showed sexist language and racist undertones, a report from the Wall Street Journal found. Gruden is suing the NFL over the email leak and his ousting.

Gruden has been spending a lot of time with his wife, Cindy, and his family. Jon and Cindy have been married since 1991.

Jon and Cindy have three children together - all boys. Pictured above, Jayson Gruden and Michael Gruden pose for a photo with their parents.

The Gruden's other son, Deuce Gruden, has worked in the NFL as a strength coach.

Jon met his wife, Cindy, while he was working at the University of Tennessee. She was a student attending the university while Jon was a graduate assistant for the football program.

They dated for several years before marrying in 1991.
