Seahawks Fire OL Coach Tom Cable

Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times reports that the Seahawks have hired OL coach Tom Cable on Wednesday.

This comes shortly after the Seahawks moved on from OC Darrell Bevell and reports have said that DC Kris Richard is likely out in Seattle as well, so major changes are coming to the Seahawks’ staff for the 2018 season.

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.

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.
