National Football League investigating whether Raiders complied with Rooney Rule before hiring Jon Gruden

Former NFL head coach returning to his old team as an assistant

Tom Cable's on the way, albeit in a lesser role.

Oakland's new coach, Jon Gruden, gained the nickname "Chucky" for his likeness to the demonic children's doll from the slasher movie Child's Play. The interim tag was lifted in 2009, and he coached the Raiders to an 8-8 record in 2010. Gruden already has the top job.

Cable came to Seattle in 2011 after having been the head coach of the Raiders for 44 games from 2008-10 seasons and having been the offensive line coach in 2007-08 - Oakland ranked in the top 10 in rushing in the National Football League each season he was the OL coach there.

The Raiders last weekend announced they had agreed to terms with Gruden on a contract to become their head coach for a second time.

Court rules in favor of Trump over fate of consumer…
Kelly had expressed skepticism in hearings last month about whether English would prevail in her case. Kelly came to the same conclusion Wednesday, denying English's request for a preliminary injunction.

Cable had been the Seahawks' offensive line coach and assistant head coach from 2011 until Wednesday, when he was sacked. He was 17-27 in two-plus seasons as Raiders head coach.

Raiders owner Mark Davis told reporters at the same news conference he and Gruden reached an agreement on Christmas Eve and that he then fired Del Rio, after which the interviews were conducted to satisfy the Rooney Rule. It's also clear that the Raiders got their man in Cable.

Bennett will work with new offensive coordinator Greg Olson and Gruden to help right an offense that struggled to find any consistency in 2017.

Gruden was on the Green Bay coaching staff from 1992-94 while Bennett was the Packers running back.
