Raiders plan to hire Tom Cable as offensive line coach

Tom Cable is on the verge of returning to the Bay Area.

Former Oakland Raiders head coach Tom Cable paces the sidelines during an NFL football game against the Arizona Cardinals Sunday, Sept. 26, 2010, in Glendale, Ariz. Gruden already has the top job.

Cable served as the Raiders' head coach from 2008 through 2010, but his stint was hardly a success.

On Wednesday, Rauner held a press conference to talk about his stay at the veterans home where he ate and slept with residents. The recent news stories about the home and the tragic loss of some of our residents has raised many concerns among the public.

Cable would be the newest member of the staff for the Raiders, who hired Jon Gruden as head coach on Tuesday. It's also clear that the Raiders got their man in Cable.

He followed that feat with the now famous quote, "We're not losers anymore".

Cable had spent the last seven years as the Seattle Seahawks' offensive line coach. He lasted with the Falcons for just one season, as Atlanta head coach Jim Mora Jr. was sacked at the conclusion of that year, leading Cable to move on to the Raiders.

During Cable's first go-round with Oakland (2008-10) his teams posted a record of 17-27 (.386 win percentage). He also worked extensively with Marshawn Lynch during the rusher's salad days in Seattle. At training camp in 2009, defensive assistant Randy Hanson sustained a broken jaw and accused Cable of assault. That same November, an ESPN report cited two women - an ex-wife and former girlfriend of Cable- as stating Cable struck them during their relationships. One of Cable's accusers sued Cable and named the Raiders as a co-defendant. Davis docked $120,000 of pay from Cable's over the final six games of his tenure amid legal fees.

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. Cable initially joined the organization as an offensive line coach in 2007. He and offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell were fired after a disappointing season where the Seahawks missed the postseason.
