ESPN is reporting two differing versions. First the written-
Oakland Raiders head coach Tom Cable denied reports on Monday that he punched defensive assistant Randy Hanson in the jaw and caused injuries that required treatment at a hospital earlier this month.
According to AOL FanHouse, Cable hit Hanson on Aug. 5 for unknown reasons. A report filed with the Napa Police Department describes an unnamed 41-year-old assistant coach being treated at the Queen of the Valley Hospital for a jaw injury, which the victim alleges was caused by an unidentified member of the Raiders coaching staff.
But Cable told ESPN’s Mark Schlereth later Monday that no punches were thrown.
That’s backed up by what former NFL scout Daniel Jeremiah told ESPN’s Chris Mortensen. Jeremiah’s “reliable source”
In public, Cable is saying it is ‘an internal matter’ and refuses to say nothing more. This morning on Mike and Mike in the morning, a ESPN radio sports talk show, they played a audio tape of Cable making the internal matter statement.
The only people who know for sure, are those at the meeting and I’m betting more contradictory versions will keep coming out. In the end this is likely to make Cable’s hold on the Raiders’s head coaching job even shakier than it is. Only success on the football field may keep his job before the 2010 NFL season begins.
