Gruden Adds ex-Packers Offensive Coordinator to Staff

Report Raiders hire ex Packers OC Edgar Bennett as receivers coach

Tom Cable is on the verge of returning to the Bay Area.

Offensive line coach was a top priority as Gruden built a staff. Cable is known for using a zone blocking scheme, though it remains uncertain what he'll use in Oakland with a powerful, expensive offensive front locked in place save the right tackle spot.

I'm writing on how the Raiders hiring Gruden is an excellent hire.

The Fritz Pollard Alliance is dedicated to promoting diversity and equality of job opportunity in the coaching, front office and scouting staffs of National Football League teams. The Raiders fired Jack Del Rio a week later and the team officially hired Gruden on Saturday. He retained the job the following year, in part because of a 31-24 win over Gruden's Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the regular-season finale. The next Tuesday, Gruden was hired and signed his contract.

Davis has not said that Gruden verbally accepted the job, but used the phrase "all in" to describe how Gruden felt about the job.

But they're making a total sham of the Rooney Rule.


The Fritz Pollard Alliance said Wednesday it is "deeply concerned by reports" that Raiders owner Mark Davis reached an agreement with Gruden before interviewing any minority candidates.

The NFL has issued discipline for Rooney Rule violations in the past.

Back in 2003 the Lions were fined $200,000 for not interviewing a minority candidate for their head coaching position.

Gruden succeeded Jack Del Rio, who was sacked following a season-ending loss to the Los Angeles Chargers that capped a disappointing 6-10 campaign for the Raiders. Cable had been the Seahawks' offensive line coach and assistant head coach from 2011 until Wednesday, when he was sacked.

The Raiders finished 8-8 in Cable's final season. He posted a 38-26 regular-season record (40-28 overall) from 1998-2001 and guided the team to a pair of playoff berths, including appearances in the AFC Championship Game in his last two seasons. Overall, he is 95-81 in 11 regular seasons and 100-85 including the postseason.
