Michael Lombardi of TheRinger is hearing that the Raiders are going to hire Tom Cable for a position on Jon Gruden’s coaching staff.
- Ian Rapoport has confirmed that the Raiders are hiring Cable and adds that he’ll be their new offensive line coach.
Cable actually came up as a potential candidate for the Colts’ job, but there hasn’t been any buzz about this being a possibility since then. Todd Archer of ESPN also mentioned that Cable is a candidate to join the Cowboys’ staff as their offensive line coach.
Cable, 53, began his NFL coaching career with the Falcons back in 2006 as an offensive line coach. He departed after one season in Atlanta to become the Raiders offensive line coach before he was promoted to head coach in 2008.
Cable was fired after three seasons before agreeing to join the Seahawks as their assistant head coach/offensive line coach.
During his three years as the Raiders’ head coach, Cable led them to a record of 17-27 (38.6) and no playoff appearances.
