Raiders hire Tom Cable

The Oakland Raiders are bringing back their former head coach.

Tom Cable is on the verge of returning to the Bay Area. Gruden already has the top job.

Former Seahawks offensive line coach Tom Cable has reportedly been hired by the Oakland Raiders.

He occupied that role in Oakland from 2007 until he assumed the head coach role when Lane Kiffin was sacked five games into the 2008 season.

Gruden was given the nickname Chucky during his first coaching stint with the Raiders for his resemblance to the horror movie doll when he scowled in anger on the sideline.


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

Cable has spent the last seven seasons working as the assistant head coach/offensive line coach for the Seattle Seahawks before being dismissed on Wednesday. He also worked extensively with Marshawn Lynch during the rusher's salad days in Seattle. Cable then led the Raiders in 2009 and 2010, and finished with a 17-27 record before former owner Al Davis elected not to renew Cable's contract.

In November of 2009, ESPN reported two women had accused Cable of physical abuse. It's also clear that the Raiders got their man in Cable. Davis docked Cable's pay in relation to that litigation. Though Cable uses a zone-blocking scheme that fell out of favor with fans and analysts given the powerful construction of Oakland's offensive line, Cable has been around the league long enough to adapt his schemes to match personnel. He and offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell were fired after a disappointing season where the Seahawks missed the postseason.

Obviously, only time will tell whether Gruden still has what it takes to be a successful coach in this league and if Carr buys in, but there's definitely a reason for optimism in Oakland as a new era gets underway for the silver and black.
