OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -The Oakland Raiders are retaining head coach Tom Cable, officially removing the interim designation from his title more than five weeks after their season ended.
Cable went 4-8 after replacing Lane Kiffin with the Raiders (5-11), who have lost at least 11 games in six consecutive seasons. Cable, Kiffin's former offensive line coach, rallied Oakland to back-to-back victories to end the season.
Oakland owner Al Davis interviewed a handful of candidates for the vacancy, but never seemed seriously inclined to replace Cable, valuing his organizational loyalty and leadership.
The Raiders will make the official announcement at a news conference Wednesday.
