Still unclear are the status of contract negotiations with Cable and when the Raiders' decision will be announced. In other news, the Raiders added two more assistant coaches to their staff, making Paul Hackett their quarterbacks coach and hiring Dwaine Board to mentor the defensive line. Hackett, a 40-year coaching veteran, assisted the Raiders' coaching staff with special projects last season. The former head coach at USC and offensive coordinator with the Jets and Kansas City will be in charge of JaMarcus Russell's development in Oakland. Board was the Seattle Seahawks' defensive line coach from 2003 to '08. He also spent 23 years in the Bay Area with the San Francisco 49ers as a player and assistant coach. Information from ESPN's Michael Smith and The Associated Press was used in this report.
