It's Official: Cable Remains Raiders' Head Coach

By  | 

The Oakland Raiders are retaining head coach Tom Cable, officially removing the interim designation from his title more than five weeks after their season ended.

Cable went 4-8 after replacing Lane Kiffin with the Raiders
(5-11), who have lost at least 11 games in six consecutive seasons.
Cable, Kiffin's former offensive line coach, rallied Oakland to
back-to-back victories to end the season.

Oakland owner Al Davis interviewed a handful of candidates for
the vacancy, but never seemed seriously inclined to replace Cable,
valuing his organizational loyalty and leadership.

The Raiders will make the official announcement at a news
conference Wednesday.
