Despite Oakland’s undefeated AFC West run, the signs continue to point towards Tom Cable losing his head coaching job.
Longtime Bay Area writer Nancy Gay writes that the “word from Alameda” is that the Raiders will not pick up Tom Cable’s option for next year. The Raiders may not announce anything until January 17, when Cable’s contract runs out.
Earlier in the day, ESPN’s Adam Schefter said Cable was unlikely to return to the Raiders.
We think that Cable has overachieved to make the Raiders 8-8 and his team clearly plays hard for him. Owner Al Davis probably sees the Raiders as a team that should have made the playoffs.
