The New Orleans Saints brought in Gruden to help as a “non-paid observer” for the club this weekend. Gruden coached Carr with the Oakland/Las Vegas Raiders from 2018 to 2021 before resigning following his email scandal.
Jeff Duncan of The Times-Picayune/The New Orleans Advocate shared a photo of Gruden and Carr reuniting during Friday’s training camp session:
Gruden signed a 10-year, $100 million contract to return to the sidelines as the Raiders’ head coach in 2018. In the midst of the 2021 season, emails Gruden had written containing racist, homophobic and misogynistic language were leaked.
He resigned soon after and was replaced by assistant Rich Bisaccia.
After nine seasons with the Raiders, Carr was released after the organization failed to find a trade for their liking. Carr went on to sign a four-year deal with New Orleans worth $150 million, reuniting with Dennis Allen, who coached him in 2014.
Gruden coached the Raiders from 1998 to 2001 before getting traded to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Gruden fittingly led the Bucs to a Super Bowl victory over Oakland in his first season with his new team.
Gruden was fired by the Buccaneers following a disappointing 2008 season. He made a transition to the broadcast booth for ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” program before coming back to coach the Raiders in 2018.
