EA Sports has announced it will remove Jon Gruden from Madden NFL 22 after the Las Vegas Raiders coach resigned from his post this week amid a scandal about his emails. The New York Times published emails showing Gruden making homophobic, misogynistic comments.

EA said it is “committed to taking action in maintaining a culture of inclusion and equity,” and will remove Gruden from Madden NFL 22. In a future update, he will be replaced with a generic likeness.

Gruden resigned from his post earlier this week after The New York Times published emails in which he made homophobic and misogynistic remarks, among other controversial statements.

Removing a real person from Madden due to an off-the-field controversy is not uncharted territory for the series, as EA cut Aaron Hernandez from Madden NFL 25 and Ray Rice from Madden NFL 15.

In 2016, EA said that Madden NFL 17’s broadcast commentary would comment on Colin Kaepernick’s decision to sit during the National Anthem, but it’s unclear if the developer ever followed through.
