Report: Raiders to keep Tom Cable

ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that Tom Cable will remain the Raiders head coach in 2010.

When contacted, Raiders spokesman John Herrera did not confirm that Cable would remain coach for the 2010 season, saying only that, despite meetings into the night the past two days, no decision has been reached.

Cable had one year remaining on his contract. But after meeting with Cable again this week, Davis made a decision that will be popular among players by keeping his head coach in place, the source said.

Cable had widespread support throughout the players in the Raiders locker room.

But his return does not mean changes will not be made. Oakland will tinker with its assistant coaches. It did so Friday when it brought back defensive line coach Mike Waufle.

I like this move by Al Davis, especially after the Raiders played hard under Cable down the stretch. That said, Cable isn’t guaranteed anything after 2010, with this being the last year of his contract.

This is horrible news for former No. 1 overall bust JaMarcus Russell, who Cable would rather eat shards of glass than play. Davis may want Russell on the field, but with Cable in charge it doesn’t look good for Russell.
