Though the Raiders are rumored to make a decision this week on their next head coach, the choice of Cable for that position is anything but certain. With this past weekend's playoff upsets, there are now available coaching candidates from some of the top seeded teams. There are also other reports that former Raider OC Marc Trestman is also being considered.
That and this report from PFT on former Raider Terry Robiskie:
As the coaching search in Oakland continues to sputter along, Jay Glazer of FOX reported on Sunday that Falcons receivers coach Terry Robiskie could be nudging closer to consideration.
And though Robiskie is not yet on the official interview list, he reportedly has lined up a staff of assistant coaches who are all willing to join him in Oakland, if he gets the job.
Robiskie, 54, is a 27-year NFL assistant, and he has twice served as an interim head coach, with the Redskins in 2000 and the Browns in 2004.
I like the idea of Robiskie as he would come with a load of NFL experience and would not be considered a retread like Gilbride. Also, according to Howie Long during the Fox pregame, suggests that Robiskie "can work with the owner" and would bring in a staff that would be "unrivaled". If this is the case and maybe still find a way to keep Cable in the organization, then this could be a good move.
