Tom Cable has been attempting to reform the Oakland Raiders into the lean, mean, brawling machine they once were, but this may be going a bit too far. According to a report in the National Football Post, Tom Cable fractured the jaw of defensive assistant Randy Hanson in altercation in Napa County.
The incident took place August 5. Napa police are currently declining to name anyone involved in the incident, and the Raiders and everyone else involved are keeping mum.
Not that keeping mum will keep chatter down on the sports blogs. AOL's Fanhouse writes that "two NFL sources have told FanHouse the attacker was Raiders' first-year head coach Tom Cable, and 'that Hanson never saw it coming.'"
Meanwhile, Deadspin snarks, "It appears Hanson won't be pressing charges, which is a pity if only because the Raiders really should have a felon for a head coach."
