Raiders all quiet with Cable’s future in limbo
ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) – Tom Cable apparently will remain coach of the Oakland Raiders at least until next week.
Cable had not had a second straight day of meetings with owner Al Davis as of early Friday afternoon. A resolution to Cable’s situation is not expected until at least next week.
Cable’s job is in question after he went 5-11 in his first full season as coach and failed to develop JaMarcus Russell into a legitimate NFL quarterback. Cable is 9-19 since replacing Lane Kiffin early in the 2008 season, leading the Raiders to their NFL-worst seventh straight season with at least 11 losses.
Cable has pointed to the team’s improvement after Russell’s midseason benching as proof that he deserves another year.
