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.

Liam Neeson says harassment allegations in entertainment industry have become "a witch-hunt"
The actor said the sexual allegations sweeping through Hollywood and the #MeToo movement have created "a bit of a witch hunt". People took to Twitter to voice their opinions, with some condemning Neeson for his comments.

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.

Helen Whately, MP for Faversham and Mid Kent, said: "I was really surprised to hear Nigel Farage calling for a second referendum. One person said: "I think a decision has been made and we have to stick by it". "That's on course to happen in 2019".

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.
