 The text of a statement released by the Oakland Raiders in response to a grievance filed Wednesday by fired coach Lane Kiffin:
The Oakland Raiders received Mr. Kiffin's grievance today. It is a short letter that:
- Completely ignores the fact that Mr. Kiffin repeatedly made reckless statements that attacked players, assistant coaches and the owner of the team and were damaging to the Raiders organization.
- Does not dispute that Mr. Kiffin made a number of false statements to the media that were damaging to the Raiders organization.
- The grievance attaches Mr. Kiffin's signed contract but ignores the provisions that explicitly stated that all of his duties were ``all subject to the direction and supervision of the general partner'' of the Raiders and also ignores the provisions of his contract that required him to avoid any conduct ``which would embarrass, discredit or disgrace'' the Raiders. Mr. Kiffin failed to honor his contract.
oach's contract and that states that every coach: ``Shall have an obligation to communicate openly and candidly with the principal owner and/or his designated representative to ensure that club ownership is informed on a complete and timely basis of all matters affecting the club's operations, to respect the authority and responsibility of ownership to make decisions on behalf of the club and to avoid actions that undermine or damage the club's reputation or operating success.'' Mr. Kiffin violated each and every provision of this resolution through 2008.
- Mr. Kiffin's false statements to the media were conveyed to the fans and the team further damaging the reputation and good will of the Raiders organization.
Mr. Kiffin was terminated for cause. The grievance is without merit.
