Kiffin out. Cable in

I’ve got to say, this reminds me of the Shannahan Shell situation, even down to the fact that Davis is going to try and stiff Kiffin.

I do think Cable is one of the better choices Davis could have made considering he was hell bent of firing Kiffin. Cable has worked miracles with the offensive line. I suppose Knapp will call the plays now.

Cable and Knapp interviewed for the head coaching job even before Kiffin was officially fired.They were hired on recommendation of Kiffin, but perhaps the offensive coaching staff wasn’t that thrilled with Kiffin, or why would they agree to interview for his job? Why would they agree to replace him?

This must not be the case where Cable and Knapp are Kiffn’s guys, but rather that Kiffin was handicapped with them by Al Davis. Al Davis surrounded Kiffin with great coaching talent including Lofton. After all Kiffin didn’t get to fire Ryan, so why would we give him credit for Cable and Knapp? Obviously Davis is the hire/fire guy.

I have to wonder if Kiffin rubbed his staff the wrong way, which was part of the reason Davis wanted to make the move. We just don’t know what happened, but maybe in time we will.

  • No Flynn? You pay Carson Palmer $15M per to go 5-11? Maybe better option, but not solving much. Probably gets hurt behind that OL.

  • No Schaub? Other options were Josh McCown (been down that road) and Ryan Fitzpatrick. TOTALLY GREAT OPTIONS!
