Evening AFC West news and notes

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that next Monday could be an important day for the future of Oakland coach Tom Cable and his staff.

Cable is expected to meet with Oakland owner Al Davis next Monday to talk about his future. There has been heavy media speculation Davis may be inclined to change coaches. Cable has expressed confidence he will return.

Cable is 9-19 as Oakland’s coach. Davis has a history of taking his time in determining futures of his coaches.

  • As expected, there is no such speculation in Kansas City. Coach Todd Haley is definitely coming back for a second season. There was some chatter that Haley could be in trouble. Haley ended the season on a high note with an offensive explosion in a game that knocked host Denver out of the playoffs Sunday.
