Tom Cable returning as Raiders OL coach

Tom Cable is on the verge of returning to the Bay Area.

The NFL said Thursday it will review the process that led to the Oakland Raiders' hiring of Jon Gruden as their head coach. Gruden already has the top job.

The 53-year-old originally joined Oakland in 2007, serving as the team's offensive line coach in 2007 and the first portion of 2008 before taking over as head coach during the latter season after Lane Kiffin was sacked.

The 53-year-old Cable worked as the Raiders offensive line coach in 2007 before becoming the team's interim head coach four games into the 2008 season after Lane Kiffin was sacked.

However, it is common practice for teams to line up candidates as the Raiders did and not interview many of them once they've decided on a coach.

He followed that feat with the now famous quote, "We're not losers anymore". He lasted with the Falcons for just one season, as Atlanta head coach Jim Mora Jr. was sacked at the conclusion of that year, leading Cable to move on to the Raiders. He was 17-27 in two-plus seasons as Raiders head coach.

Cable had spent the last seven years as the Seattle Seahawks' offensive line coach.

Cable returning to the Raiders seemed highly unlikely after late owner Al Davis detailed Cable's misgivings in a post-firing press conference. ESPN also aired a report where three women accused Cable of domestic violence.

The Raiders finished 8-8 in Cable's final season.

It also should be noted that former offensive coordinator Todd Downing's scheme was unsuccessful while utilizing zone blocking, that doesn't mean Cable's would be.

Obviously, only time will tell whether Gruden still has what it takes to be a successful coach in this league and if Carr buys in, but there's definitely a reason for optimism in Oakland as a new era gets underway for the silver and black.
