Schefter: Raiders fire Tom Cable

ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Oakland Raiders have fired coach Tom Cable.
The Raiders finished 8-8 under Cable this season. It was the first time they were at least .500 since 2002 when they went to the Super Bowl.
Cable’s fast firing could mean the Raiders will try to promote offensive coordinator Hue Jackson to head coach. The Raiders had given Bay Area rival San Francisco permission to talk to Jackson earlier Tuesday.
I will have more reaction later.
