Jon Gruden is no longer in Madden NFL 22.
EA Sports made the announcement today in a statement on Twitter.

It read, “EA Sports is committed to taking action in maintaining a culture of inclusion and equity. Due to the circumstances of Jon Gruden’s resignation, we are taking steps to remove him from Madden NFL 22. We will replace him with a generic likeness via a title update in the coming weeks.”

Gruden resigned as head coach of the Raiders on Monday night after his past emails, in which he reportedly used racist, homophobic and misogynistic language, were released.
