The speculation about Tom Cable’s future in Oakland is over. We think.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Al Davis has decided to retain Cable for 2010, the final year of Cable’s contract.
Raiders spokesman John Herrera did not confirm the news when contacted by Schefter, saying no decision has been made despite meetings into the night the last two days.
(We’ll take the absence of any “false rumor monger” accusations as a positive for Cable.)
It remains to be seen if Cable will keep his playcalling duties, but there has been widespread speculation that he won’t. Davis met with Ravens quarterbacks coach Hue Jackson about the team’s offensive coordinator position.
