Raiders to hire Tom Cable as O-line coach

Share

Tom Cable is on the verge of returning to the Bay Area. Michael Lombardi of The Ringer was the first to report that an agreement between the two sides was coming.

He went to Seattle after that, and spent seven seasons as Seahawks assistant head coach in charge of the offensive line. Cable was sacked after the conclusion of the 2017 regular season, but like Gruden, he's now set to return to a familiar workplace. Although Gruden has a Super Bowl title to his credit and was successful during his first stint with the Raiders, he hasn't coached in almost a decade and there's no telling whether he'll be able to adapt to the modern era of coaching in the NFL.

The Rooney Rule means teams have to interview at least one minority candidate before making a coaching hire, and Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported the Raiders satisfied the requirement by interviewing Tee Martin and Bobby Johnson.

At Cable's firing, Davis produced a file of grievances from his stint at head coach and said he had fined him $20,000 per week for six weeks. Cable stayed head coach through the 2010 season and compiled a 17-27 record before being fired.

The 53-year-old Cable worked as the Raiders offensive line coach in 2007 before becoming the team's interim head coach four games into the 2008 season after Lane Kiffin was sacked.

It was a special day, as hordes of media members, and north of 50 Raiders alumni filled up the team's performance, center anxious to see the newest leader of the coaching staff. He was replaced as head coach by Hue Jackson. Cable was allegedly involved in a 2009 incident where then Raiders assistant Randy Hanson was left with a broken jaw.

Cable's tenure included allegations of physical abuse.

Jack Del Rio was sacked immediately after the Raiders week 17 loss to the Chargers.
