Raiders plan to hire Tom Cable as offensive line coach

Former NFL head coach returning to his old team as an assistant

According to Michael Lombardi and the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Raiders are set to hire Tom Cable as their offensive line coach. Cable was sacked after the conclusion of the 2017 regular season, but like Gruden, he's now set to return to a familiar workplace.

Jon Gruden hasn't been the Head Coach of the Oakland Raiders for long, but the news has noticeably shaken the sports universe.

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 is the first of the Seattle coaches fired - or rumored to be on the way out - to find a new job.

Cable was elevated to interim head coach for Lane Kiffin four games into the 2008 season.

Trump keeps Iran nuclear deal intact but adds unrelated sanctions on Tehran
Yuhua was blacklisted for "selling navigation-related equipment" to a designated Iranian company, the agency said. The U.S. will negotiate the new parameters with its European allies only, not Iran, according to the official.

The Fitz Pollard Alliance, an advocacy group that promotes diversity in National Football League front offices and coaching staffs, asked the National Football League to investigate whether the Raiders reached an agreement with Gruden before interviewing minority candidates. He was replaced by Hue Jackson, who was hired to be Cable's offensive coordinator by Davis in the 2010 season. But Davis himself has let on that he and Gruden talked in week 16 prior to the Raiders game in Philadelphia that Gruden called for ESPN.

Cable, 53, had 17-27 record for the Raiders as head coach. Cable later sued to recover that money. Then-owner Al Davis fired Cable amid physical abuse allegations, including those involving women. At training camp in 2009, defensive assistant Randy Hanson sustained a broken jaw and accused Cable of assault.

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

It remains to be seen how Cable will mesh with the Raiders' highly-paid offensive line.

Since leaving the Raiders, Cable has spent seven seasons in Seattle where he coached the Seahawks' offensive line, a unit that came under heavy scrutiny for its inability to protect quarterback Russell Wilson over the last several years.
