Raiders to hire Cable as offensive line coach

He occupied that role in Oakland from 2007 until he assumed the head coach role when Lane Kiffin was sacked five games into the 2008 season.

The NFL is investigating the process in which the Oakland Raiders hired new head coach, Jon Gruden and whether the team violated the Rooney Rule, league spokesman Brian McCarthy confirmed.

According to Michael Lombardi and the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Raiders are set to hire Tom Cable as their offensive line coach.

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.

Since Bayliss took over in May 2015, England have won only 15 of his 38 Tests in charge (along with 18 losses and five draws). Finch's innings ensured Australia had a decent platform from which to launch in the closing overs. 0857 hrs IST: WICKET! .

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.

Cable, 53, was with the Raiders from 2007 to 2010, including a 44-game stretch as head coach from 2008 until his firing after the 2010 season, posting a 17-27 record. At training camp in 2009, defensive assistant Randy Hanson sustained a broken jaw and accused Cable of assault. One of Cable's accusers sued Cable and named the Raiders as a co-defendant.

The Seahawks fired Cable along with offensive coordinator Darren Bevell after finishing 9-7 to miss the playoffs for the first time since 2011.

Gruden was on the Green Bay coaching staff from 1992-94 while Bennett was the Packers running back.
