Cable said Wednesday he talked to Davis within the past two days and will keep the content of the conversation private. He says his job status was not discussed and he plans to coach the team for the remainder of the season.
The Raiders are undergoing a ``serious evaluation'' of allegations made to ESPN by Cable's first wife, Sandy Cable, and former girlfriend, Marie Lutz, that the coach physically abused them at various times during their relationships.
Cable has acknowledged striking Sandy Cable with an open hand more than 20 years ago. He says that was the only time he's ever touched a woman inappropriately.
The Raiders were 17-point road underdogs against the Chargers in Week 8 according to oddsmakers from online sports book Sports Interaction. Oakland lost, but covered in a 24-16 defeat.
