Randy Hanson, the former Raiders assistant who left the coaching staff and later sued the team saying then-head coach Tom Cable had assaulted him, was recently arrested for assault himself.
The San Luis Obispo Tribune reports that Hanson, who was recently hired as the defensive backs coach at Cal Poly, has been suspended from his job indefinitely after he was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon on Saturday. Hanson is accused of attacking a man with a beer bottle at a bar last weekend.
Cable was accused of breaking his jaw during a fight at training camp in August of 2009. Prosecutors in Napa County, California, reviewed the allegation and did not bring charges against Cable. Hanson left the coaching staff shortly after the incident, then returned to the Raiders a few months later as a scout.
Hanson sued the Raiders in 2010, and when Al Davis fired Cable after the 2010 season, he said the lawsuit brought “stress” and “turmoil” upon the Raiders, and he blamed Cable for that.
