The Raiders are expected to hire Tom Cable as their coach, league sources said. The Raiders denied the story and said Wednesday that no decision has been made.
It also should be noted that team owner Al Davis is the original maverick, and he has been known to unexpectedly change his mind.
But as of Wednesday, Davis had begun telling people around the league he had made up his mind and Cable was his guy, according to sources. The interim tag is expected to be dropped from Cable’s title and he is expected to become the Raiders full-time coach.
