    SHOULD WE BE HAPPY OR SAD FOR COACH CABLE?

  • VenturaBruin

    I wonder if he’ll try to hire Karl Dorrell in some capacity with the Raiders.

    an sc product being called a ‘flat-out liar’??? come on, who’s ever gonna believe that?

    Dorrell has a job with the Dolphins. And Al Davis makes all hiring decisions anyway.

  • Fan4Life

    Dorrell’s former assistants:

    DJ McCarthy. Receivers. LSU
    Jim Colletto. OC Detroit Lions (OL coach in 2007)
    Don Johnson. DLine. Raiders (Before that DL coach w/Bears)
    Brian Schneider. ST coach Raiders.
    Jon Wristen. HC Colorado State – Pueblo. (former UCLA LB Mike Babcock is coaching TEs)
    Jon Embree. TE coach KC Chiefs.
    Bob Connelly. Co-OC & Associate HC. Utep
    Jay Norvell. Asst OC & Receivers.
    Eric Bieniemy. Running backs. Vikings.
    Tom Cable. HC Raiders(OL coach Raiders; OL coach Falcons)
    Dino Babers. Receivers/Recruiting coordinator Baylor.
    Jim Svoboda. Asst HC & Asst OC. Montana State.

    Anyone else?

    Left out Norvell is with the Sooners.

    I thought Cable was smarter than that!!

    Great list Fan4Life – thanks for posting!

    Glad to see all of Dorrell’s assistants moved on with their lives and got new jobs.

    But the life of a coach, traveling all over the country, the hours, getting fired, is not a life most men could handle.

    I guess to do the job you have to love football more than I do.

    It’s a push for Cable.

    Feel bad for him:
    -He’ll have to deal with Alsheimer Al’s nonsense for the rest of the year.

    Don’t feel too bad:
    -Like Kiffin a couple years back no one will expect him to succeed with the organization since nobody could, nothing he can do will seem like a failure.

    I’d suggest keeping in touch with Kiffin. When Al hires a flashy expensive coach during the off season (who will also fail) he can get a job at Syracuse, Washington, Arkansas or wherever Kiffin ends up as HC next year.

    Yet another example of former trojans failing in the NFL… and former Bruins succeeding.

    Well, best of luck to him but maybe we should wait until he wins a game and removes the word “interim” from his job title before describing him as “succeeding.”

  • OC Bruin

    Well, anytime anyone gets a promotion, interim or not, they’re succeeding at what they’re doing – at least for the time being. Clearly, they’re not moving backwards.

    ok, fair enough.
