NFL closes investigation of alleged abuse by Cable

The NFL announced Wednesday that their investigation into allegations of domestic abuse by Raiders coach Tom Cable on a former spouse and girlfriend warranted no further punishment.

“The local district attorney found no basis for bringing charges,” said Greg Aiello, the NFL’s senior vice president of public relations. “The domestic violence incident was many years ago before he was an NFL coach and no criminal charges were brought against him. We concluded that his conduct in the Raiders incident warranted an evaluation (per our Personal Conduct Policy) and on a confidential basis any counseling deemed appropriate by the clinicians.”

The announcement comes one day after former Raiders assistant coach Randy Hanson filed a civil suit against Cable and the Raiders, alleging harm and damages resulting from an altercation between him and Cable in training camp last season.

In response to the allegations made by his ex-wife, Cable admitted that he had struck her.

“During my first marriage, I became aware that my wife Sandy had committed adultery,” Cable said in a statement made in November. “I became very angry and slapped her with an open hand. What I did was wrong and I have regretted and felt sorrow about that moment ever since.”
