Raiders to hire Cable as offensive line coach

Tom Cable

Offensive line coach was a top priority as Gruden built a staff. Cable is known for using a zone blocking scheme, though it remains uncertain what he'll use in Oakland with a powerful, expensive offensive front locked in place save the right tackle spot.

According to Michael Lombardi and the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Raiders are set to hire Tom Cable as their offensive line coach.

Jon Gruden isn't the only Raiders head coach returning to the Silver and Black.

According to federal election filings , Manning completed the paperwork on January 5, and it was delivered on January 11. Before leaving the White House, President Barack Obama commuted all but four months of Manning's remaining prison term.

He went to Seattle after that, and spent seven seasons as Seahawks assistant head coach in charge of the offensive line.

In training camp in 2009, Randy Hanson, a Raiders assistant, was the alleged victim of a punch by Cable which left him a broken jaw. Although Gruden has a Super Bowl title to his credit and was successful during his first stint with the Raiders, he hasn't coached in almost a decade and there's no telling whether he'll be able to adapt to the modern era of coaching in the NFL. 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.

In January of 2011, Davis cited the latter situation when discussing Cable's departure.

Espanyol boss Quique Sanchez Flores turns down move to Stoke City
The Irish Independent report that former Sunderland and Hoops manager O'Neill was set to meet with Stoke top brass last night. O'Neill and Keane have worked together for Ireland since 2013 but did not manage to secure a spot at this summer's World Cup.

Cable previously coached the Raiders' offensive line in 2007 and was promoted to interim head coach four games into the 2008 season after then-owner Al Davis fired Lane Kiffin. Davis docked $120,000 of pay from Cable's over the final six games of his tenure amid legal fees. During that time, Bennett played running back in Green Bay. Cable's familiarity with Lynch may indicate that Lynch will be retained. The Raiders fired Jack Del Rio a week later and the team officially hired Gruden on Saturday.

Bennett is the fourth coach Gruden has hired since taking over in Oakland.

ESPN's Stephen A. Smith recently chimed in on the subject and gave what he thinks is a reasonable timeline for Gruden to win a Super Bowl with the Raiders.
