Raiders to hire Tom Cable as O-line coach

Report Gruden Adds ex Packers Offensive Coordinator to Staff

The Fritz Pollard Alliance asked the National Football League to investigate the Raiders and whether they satisfied the Rooney Rule in a statement Wednesday, per Ben Volin of the Boston Globe.

The league and the alliance previously declared the Raiders to be in compliance with the rule based on their interviews of Bobby Johnson, their tight ends coach, and Tee Martin, the offensive coordinator of USC.

Prior to Gruden's official hiring, the Fritz Pollard Alliance initially downplayed concerns that the Raiders were in compliance with the Rooney Rule. The next Tuesday, Gruden was hired and signed his contract.

The team announced the move Saturday as soon as Gruden finished his. And I never wavered from all-in. The interim tag was lifted in 2009, and he coached the Raiders to an 8-8 record in 2010.

Cable returning to the Raiders seemed highly unlikely after late owner Al Davis detailed Cable's misgivings in a post-firing press conference.

This will not be Cable's first rodeo with the Raiders.

"But if in December, Gruden and Davis reach an agreement - not necessarily a written, contractual agreement, but a verbal agreement - that Gruden was going to coach for the Raiders, and then after that they do these interviews with minority coaches, that would be a violation of the Rooney Rule".

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

The Bucs were bounced from the playoffs, and Gruden was sacked by Tampa Bay.

Known for his feisty sideline demeanor, Gruden admitted he has some "unfinished" business with the Raiders.

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

His tenure ended shortly after the "Tuck Rule" loss to the New England Patriots when he was traded the following month to Tampa Bay for two first-round draft picks, two second-rounders and $8 million.

Green Bay was where Gruden met Bennett. Overall, he is 95-81 in 11 regular seasons and 100-85 including the postseason.
