Tom Cable believes he’ll be a head coach again


During the still-spinning NFL coaching carousel cycle, former Raiders coach Tom Cable’s name came up once, in connection with an ultimately debunked report that the Lions wanted to interview him.

They didn’t, and Cable has drawn no interest as to any of the other six vacancies -- all but two of which are now filled.

But Cable is keeping the faith. Cable told Alex Marvez and Gil Brandt of SiriusXM NFL Radio that he believes he’ll be an NFL head coach again.

“I think the shot will come,” Cable said Tuesday night. “I’ve been told that a number of times. . . . I’ll be a head coach again someday, just when the right owner and organization wants a tough style and a demanding style and discipline and all those things that go with it. . . . When that opportunity comes, I’ll be ready for it, and we’ll be successful.”

It’s unclear when or if the opportunity will come, and whether Cable will be successful the second time around, if there is one. But he’s definitely doing well in his current job as offensive line coach of the Seahawks, helping the team get through a stretch where multiple injuries made it very hard to run the offense.
