Raiders cut ties with Cable - [Full Article]

The Oakland Raiders have told coach Tom Cable they are not picking up his option to bring him back next season.

The team announced the decision Tuesday night.

Cable's agent Don Yee says other teams have already shown interest in hiring Cable for other jobs. Cable has extensive experience as an offensive line coach.

Yahoo! Sports reported on Dec. 12 that Cable was upset when Hue Jackson was hired as the Raiders' offensive coordinator and that Jackson's associates are pushing him to find another job.

Jackson denied there was a rift when asked about the story days later.

"I don't know where all that stuff comes from," Jackson said. "We all here have a pretty good working relationship. I have known Tom here longer than probably anybody that's on this staff, other than Mike Waufle because I worked with those guys before. I was a little surprised by it. There's no truth to it."

If the Raiders plan to promote Jackson, they have competition. They gave the cross-bay rival 49ers permission to interview Jackson for their head coach opening earlier Tuesday afternoon.
