Tom Cable out as Raiders head coach; what’s your call?

on January 5, 2011

The Oakland Raiders announced Tuesday that the team will not extend head coach Tom Cable’s contract. SFGate is reporting that a source close to offensive coordinator Hue Jackson has indicated that he will take over the job.

An official statement from the team about Cable’s replacement has not been released yet, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make the call on his ouster. Vote in our poll: smart play or terrible fumble?
