Raiders: End of the line for Tom Cable in Oakland

The Oakland Raiders are cutting ties with head coach Tom Cable, announcing tonight that they will not extend his contract.
The team said that Cable was informed that his contract would not be extended today.
He had a team option in his contract for later this month.
"The Raiders express gratitude to Tom Cable for his contributions in his four seasons as an assistant and as Head Coach of the Silver and Black," the team said in a statement.
Cable led the Raiders to an 8-8 mark, going 17-27 overall as head coach.
Cable is expected to draw interest around the league as an assistant coach.
The Raiders could turn to offensive coordinator Hue Jackson, who was granted permission to interview for the San Francisco 49ers job.
Stanford coach Jim Harbaugh, who's also regarded as the San Francisco 49ers' top candidate for their head coaching vacancy, could emerge as a contender for the Raiders job.
He has worked for the Raiders in the past and is highly regarded by owner Al Davis.
It could be a Battle of the Bay Area for Harbaugh's services between Stanford, the 49ers and the Raiders.
