It looks like the Raiders are not going to go very far in picking their head coach for the 2009 season, as reports from NFL Network’s Adam Schefter say that the team is going to go with Tom Cable. Of course the Radiers are denying the report, and are saying that as of right now no decision has been made.
Schefter says that Raiders owner Al Davis started telling people around the league that a choice has been made and that Cable is going to be the teams new coach. Cable likely won the coaching derby after two wins in the Raiders the last two weeks, with a key win coming in week 17 over former Raiders coach Jon Gruden and the Buccaneers in Tampa Bay.
Cable was named the teams interim coach after Davis fired Lane Kiffin early in the 2008 season.
