The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced Tuesday they are removing Jon Gruden from the Buccaneers Ring of Honor, a day after Gruden resigned as Las Vegas Raiders head coach following the release of offensive emails.

“The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have advocated for purposeful change in the areas of race relations, gender equality, diversity and inclusion for many years,” the team statement read. “While we acknowledge Jon Gruden’s contributions on the field, his actions go against our core values as an organization. Therefore, he will no longer continue to be a member of the Buccaneers Ring of Honor.”
