Former Raiders Head Coach Tom Cable Reportedly Will Join Jon Gruden's Staff

The Fitz Pollard Alliance, an advocacy group that promotes diversity in National Football League front offices and coaching staffs, asked the National Football League to investigate whether the Raiders reached an agreement with Gruden before interviewing minority candidates.

Although Gruden has a Super Bowl title to his credit and was successful during his first stint with the Raiders, he hasn't coached in almost a decade and there's no telling whether he'll be able to adapt to the modern era of coaching in the NFL. The Raiders did interview two minorities, Bobby Johnson, the Raiders former tight ends coach, and Tee Martin, the former offensive coordinator at USC.

The team announced the move Saturday as soon as Gruden finished his.

Jack Del Rio was sacked immediately after the Raiders week 17 loss to the Chargers. The next Tuesday, Gruden was hired and signed his contract.

Cable returning to the Raiders seemed highly unlikely after late owner Al Davis detailed Cable's misgivings in a post-firing press conference. The interim tag was lifted in 2009, and he coached the Raiders to an 8-8 record in 2010. But Davis himself has let on that he and Gruden talked in week 16 prior to the Raiders game in Philadelphia that Gruden called for ESPN. "If in December, Gruden says to Davis, 'Hey, I am going to come out of the broadcast booth and I'm ready to coach again, ' that is not a violation of the Rooney Rule". The Raiders had seven straight losing seasons before finishing.500 in what would be Cable's last season with the club.

The argument against the Raiders is that while they officially complied with the Rooney Rule, a verbal agreement with Gruden essentially made those interviews with minority candidates meaningless, as the job was never open. Then-Detroit Lions general manager Matt Millen was fined $200,000 for circumventing the rule when he hired Steve Mariucci as the team's head coach in 2003.

Oakland is coming off of a very disappointing 6-10 campaign, just one year after it won 12 games.
