The Oakland Raiders have their head coach their new head coach place for the long-term future with Jon Gruden agreeing to a 10-year deal with the team.
Tom Cable, at the helm from 2008 to 2010, reportedly has returned to the franchise as its offensive line coach.
Since leaving the Raiders, Cable has spent seven seasons in Seattle where he coached the Seahawks' offensive line, a unit that came under heavy scrutiny for its inability to protect quarterback Russell Wilson over the last several years. This comes after Schefter reported the 10-year, $100 million contract Oakland gave Gruden was the longest coaching deal in National Football League history. Although Gruden has a Super Bowl title to his credit and was successful during his first stint with the Raiders, he hasn't coached in almost a decade and there's no telling whether he'll be able to adapt to the modern era of coaching in the NFL.
On the field, Gruden will take over for Jack Del Rio after the latter was sacked following a 6-10 season. Cable stayed head coach through the 2010 season and compiled a 17-27 record before being fired.

Among the media in attendance, Steve Wyche and James Palmer from NFL Network weighed in on the event. Napa police did not press charges. ESPN also aired a report where three women accused Cable of domestic violence. Cable finished out his final season. Davis docked $120,000 of pay from Cable's contact over the final six games of his tenure amid legal fees.
Cable had been the Seahawks' offensive line coach and assistant head coach from 2011 until Wednesday, when he was sacked. The Raiders retained him after a 4-8 finish, and they went 5-11 and then 8-8 during the next two years of his tenure.
Cable is a respected position coach, though the Seahawks offensive line has fallen on hard times. Cable's familiarity with Lynch might indicate that Lynch will be retained. The next Tuesday, Gruden was hired and signed his contract.
