Exodus of Assistant Coaches, Can Cable Attract A Decent Staff?

Knapp to Seattle to be an OC – Not that I don’t think the guy is a great guy, but he hasn’t had much success being an OC. Not a loss.

Ryan to Cleveland to be a DC – I guess time will now tell if it was really Rob Ryan’s fault for the defensive woes. Probably better he moves on.

Rathman to SF to be an OC – Huge Loss. This was one of the guys I was hoping to keep around. Maybe it will help Bush though, his “body language” expressed his displeasure at FB and perhaps a new RB coach wont push him to do that (It wont happen with O’Neal and Griffith back anyway).

Schneider getting looks in Jacksonville and Seattle – Anothe big loss. Special Teams has been a bright spot. You have to wonder if that is partly Lechler and Higgins, or if Schneider had a lot to do with it.

Cable may have sat down with Davis to discuss his future today. One thing that I have been wondering, is if Cable has enough league connections to attract a top flight coaching staff. It is now clear that plenty of assistant are moving on.

Can Cable hire a decent staff? I am beginning to wonder if that may be one of the reasons Davis decides against bringing Cable back as HC. I wouldn’t be surprised if Cable agreed to come back as Assistant HC/ Offensive Line or Assistant HC/OC. It might be enticing enough for Cable to consider. It would also ensure at least a little consistency. We will be changing even if Cable stays as HC, Lofton is the only other notable guy under contract.

The question would be: Who is the HCif not Cable?

Davis has one thing going for him. Many eyes are on the Raiders, wondering what they are going to do.

With basically a completely new staff coming in, it will be an interesting offseason in Alameda once again.
