Reports: WFT exec Bruce Allen was close with NFL’s general counsel

Ex-Washington Football Team president Bruce Allen, whose email exchanges with Jon Gruden led to the Las Vegas Raiders coach’s resignation, was also a regular email correspondent of NFL general counsel Jeff Pash, the New York Times and Wall Street Journal reported Thursday night.

The messages were part of the 650,000 emails that the NFL examined as part of an investigation into workplace misconduct at the Washington club.

According to the reports, Pash and Allen regularly wrote back and forth regarding matters involving the league and other topics. Pash later was involved in the investigation into the Washington team.

Pash took a conciliatory approach to Allen regarding Washington controversies, including alleged improprieties with injury reports as well as alleged sexual harassment against members of the club’s cheerleading squad.

Addressing the cheerleading controversy, Pash wrote to Allen, “I know that you are on it and would not condone something untoward.”

NFL executive vice president of communications Jeff Miller responded to the Times and the Journal regarding the emails, “Communication between league office employees and club executives occurs on a daily basis. Jeff Pash is a respected and high-character NFL executive. Any effort to portray these emails as inappropriate is either misleading or patently false.”
