Cable seeking other jobs outside of Oakland?

One of the more interesting storylines so far as the NFL heads into its offseason is the one brewing in Oakland regarding Tom Cable’s job.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported last week that Cable’s job is secure for now and that he would coach the Raiders in 2010. But now Jason La Confora reports that Al Davis still hasn’t decided whether or not to retain Cable as his head coach. Now reports are surfacing that Cable has already begun to look for jobs in other cities.

From the National Football Post:

All last week, there was speculation that current Raiders head coach Tom Cable might be interested in an offensive line position with another team. In fact, one team was calling around looking for recommendations on him. That doesn’t happen if the coach is secure.

If Cable has already begun to look for other jobs, it’s not a bad idea on his part. Davis has always done things his way, which usually means he makes rash decisions before thinking things through. He could fire Cable at any point this offseason if he finds a replacement that he likes.

I can already tell that this is going to be a great storyline throughout the offseason. Of course, whenever Al Davis is involved in something, it always makes for interesting news.
