ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) As soon as Tom Cable drove into the Raiders facility seven years after being fired from his dream job as head coach in Oakland, he knew he wanted to return to the franchise he cheered for as a kid.
Instead of feeling bitterness over his firing, Cable wanted to come back as coach Jon Gruden's offensive line coach to complete some unfinished business.
"This has been my team since I was a little boy, so it's not like it changed because I got run out of town," Cable said Thursday. "It probably just made it a little bit deeper for me, which is cool. That's why I'm here."
