A small glitch arose in connection with the report that Raiders owner Al Davis would fire coach Tom Cable on Monday.
Per the Associated Press, the two men never met.
It remains to be seen whether they get together today — and if so whether Davis pulls the trigger on the man who replaced Lane Kiffin during the 2008 season.
Since Jon Gruden left after the 2001 season, Davis has had five head coaches: Bill Callahan, Norv Turner, Art Shell, Kiffin, and Cable.
We’re told that Davis alone will make the decision, with echo-chamber input from senior executive John Herrera, director of college scouting Jon Kingdon, and general counsel Jeff Birren.
