Bye Bye Chucky: Former NFL Coach Jon Gruden

Bye Bye Chucky: Former NFL Coach Jon Gruden

Jon Gruden was riding high. He was 4 games into his 3rd season of a 10 year $100 million contract coaching the Las Vegas Raiders. However, an investigation into an owner of another team in the league revealed a series of emails from Jon Gruden to an executive on that team where he used derogatory terms towards women, blacks, and homosexuals. He coached one more game and then he was forced to resign by owner Mark Davis. Gruden went from being one of the most well-known and respected coaches in the league to a pariah almost overnight.

Dave is an accomplished economics instructor with over two decades of experience in the prestigious International Baccalaureate program. His students have consistently ranked in the top 10% annually, and one year they achieved the highest overall class average in the world. This outstanding achievement led a UK publisher to request that he write a textbook, an offer he declined in favor of creating sports quizzes, which he found more engaging.

In addition to his teaching career, Dave is also a former high school football coach, having won a couple of local championships. While he wishes he had won more, he continues to be deeply involved in football as a scout, recruiter, and social media creator for a university football team.

Dave's passions extend beyond the classroom and football field. He is an avid fan of live music and international travel, often combining these interests. He has traveled to Spain, England, Iceland, and Chile to see bands perform. His greatest pride and joy is his daughter, who has recently excelled in powerlifting. In just a few years, she has become the Canadian record holder for the bench press in her weight class and finished second overall in the combined national event (bench, deadlift, and squat) in Moose Jaw in March 2024. She will be representing Canada at the World Bench Competition in Austin, Texas, in May 2024.

A die-hard fan of the Las Vegas Raiders, Dave has experienced his share of sports heartache, having seen them play in seven NFL cities with six losses. His all-time favorite athlete is Don Mattingly, reflecting his deep love for sports that spans many arenas.
