Tom Cable returning as Raiders OL coach

Share

"Chucky" indeed has returned to the Bay Area in the form of Jon Gruden, but that definitely wasn't the new Oakland Raiders head coach riding shotgun with an East Bay motorist.

The league and the alliance previously declared the Raiders to be in compliance with the rule based on their interviews of Bobby Johnson, their tight ends coach, and Tee Martin, the offensive coordinator of USC. Gruden already has the top job. However, for the second time this offseason, the Raiders have hired a former head coach, as Tom Cable is reportedly set to return to Oakland and work under Gruden as the team's offensive line coach.

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 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.

During Cable's first go-round with Oakland (2008-10) his teams posted a record of 17-27 (.386 win percentage). Davis docked Cable's pay in relation to that litigation.

It also should be noted that former offensive coordinator Todd Downing's scheme was unsuccessful while utilizing zone blocking, that doesn't mean Cable's would be.

The hiring of Cable will also net a happier running back in Marshawn Lynch, who had his glory years in the Pacific Northwest with Cable as his offensive line coach.
