ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — Tom Cable is still waiting to meet with owner Al Davis to discuss his status as Oakland Raiders coach.
Cable said at his season-ending news conference Jan. 4 that he would meet with Davis sometime this week. As of Wednesday, that meeting had not occurred. Team senior executive John Herrera says there is no set time when the meeting will be held.
Cable’s job status is in question after he went 5-11 in his first full season as coach and failed to develop JaMarcus Russell into a legitimate NFL quarterback.
Cable points to the team’s improvement after Russell’s midseason benching as proof that he deserves another year to get the Raiders back to the playoffs. Oakland has lost at least 11 games for seven straight seasons.
