Tom Cable may not have to twist in the wind much longer.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter points out that the NFL calendar may give us an answer to Al Davis’ intentions. Teams must inform their assistant coaches whether they will be retained by the third Tuesday after the end of the regular season.
Davis is expected to make numerous changes to his assistant coaches Tuesday. Cable is expected to learn his fate by then, as well.
One bad sign for Cable: Schefter says Davis has already started to contact potential head coaching replacements. We already know one guy who is interested.
