Some things are so good they can’t be made up. This is one.
In the most ironic and fun factoid of the week, new Raiders head coach Tom Cable was a teammate and protected quarterback Scott Linehan at the University of Idaho in the 1980s.
Cable attended Idaho from 1982-86, Linehan from 1982-87. And their head coach from 1982-85 was Dennis Erickson.
Also, someone from NFL Network just asked if Cable is the “interim” coach in Oakland or whether he’s the guy moving forward. Best answer: Cable’s the coach for now — they’re all interim in Oakland.
