Cable Likely Out as Raiders Coach


Despite a perfect record in the division and an 8-8 season, it appears that Tom Cable has not done enough to keep his job as the head coach of the Raiders. Sources including Adam Schefter of ESPN state that Cable is unlikely to return as the Raiders head coach in 2011.

“Hopefully I get another chance,” Cable said after Sunday’s win in Kansas City.

Raiders players seemed to be well aware of the possibility of Cable moving on, as it sounds like they felt that it was very possible that Cable would not be back. “This is a business decision,” Campbell replied when asked if players want Cable back. “You never get caught up in all of it. I’ve been through a lot before. I’m just glad we finished the season off strong, and we’ll see what happens.”

It was their first unblemished mark in the division since 1976, but Cable has fluctuated between starting quarterbacks and Oakland has lost four of six since a three-game winning streak put them on the cusp of the playoff picture in Week 10. The Raiders are the first team since the 1970 merger to go unbeaten in the division and not make the playoffs.

    Leave well enough alone, we like Cable, and he has this team going. Every team will have ups and downs, face it Cable has done more for the Raiders than any other coach sine Kruden

    Mr. Tom Cable owns the AFC West.
    I don’t think Al Davis will let this great coach escape.
    BSPN can’t stand watching the Raiders improve and always create false rumors this time of year.
