Oakland Raiders Disintegrate - Assistant's resignation leaves Tom Cable fuming - Inside Bay Area

Assistant's resignation leaves Tom Cable fuming - Inside Bay Area: “ALAMEDA — Former Raiders coach Lane Kiffin won't be receiving a Christmas card from current Raiders coach Tom Cable anytime soon. Not after the manner in which Kiffin lured away assistant offensive line coach James Cregg to join him at the University of Tennessee.
Cregg phoned Cable after Sunday's game against the New England Patriots and informed Cable of his resignation, effective immediately. Cable likened it to quitting on the Raiders.
"You got to understand offensive linemen," Cable said during his weekly news conference Monday. "This is our world. If I can speak freely here, it's about pride, it's about commitment, it's about trusting everybody next to you. So, to walk ... out of here is about as bad a deal as you could possibly do to that group of guys."
Cable didn't mince words when he gave his thoughts on Cregg, Kiffin and the way the situation unfolded.
In response to Cregg's resignation, Cable called in former Kiffin loyalists Mark Jackson and Stephen Reaves — Kiffin's brother-in-law — and fired them Monday morning. Jackson was the director of football development, and Reaves was an office assistant.”

--- This just shows how much of a mess the Raiders organization is. Cable should not have made that move, but that's the Raider way it seems.
