February 12, 2019Feb 12, 2019

The famous son of an NFL coach has just made headlines for all the wrong reasons. According to reports, Jack Gruden has just been arrested.

Jack comes from a long line of coaches and NFL leaders. He is the son of Jay Gruden and the nephew of John Gruden. Jay coaches the Washington Redskins and John coaches for the Oakland Raiders.

"Gruden, 22, who is also the nephew of Oakland Raiders head coach Jon Gruden, got into the confrontations at an Ashburn restaurant at around 2:15 a.m., ESPN reported, citing a police report. A deputy broke up an initial argument between Gruden and another man, but Gruden reportedly was involved in two other incidents leading to the arrest," reported Fox News.

The Redskins have since responded to the news with a statement.

“We are aware of the arrest of Jack Gruden. We are gathering more information and will not comment until we have further details,” Redskins spokesman Tony Wyllie said in a statement to ESPN.

Jack is a member of the Redskins staff and has also volunteered as a video assistant for the organization. His father is currently going on his sixth season with the team.

We hope this is a major life lesson for Jack and he recovers from this stronger than ever. He has a lot of pressure to live up to his family name and we wish him the best moving forward.
