Me, you and everyone else believes Tom Cable will eventually be named the Raiders' head coach.
But while Cable waits to find out if he has the job, the Raiders did announce some staffing updates.
Paul Hackett is the new quarterbacks coach. It's the same job he held in Tampa Bay from 2005-07.
Hackett replaces John DeFilippo.
Here's a quick loot at how QBs did under Hackett during that time:
2007: Jeff Garcia, No. 7 in passer rating (94.6), 13 TDs, 4 INTs. The Bucs made the playoffs.
2006: Bruce Gradkowski, Rookie started 11 games with 9 TDs and 9 INTs.
2005: Chris Simms started 10 games. He completed 61 percent of his passes with 10 TDs and 7 INTs.
Though Hackett didn't coach JaMarcus Russell last season, he must have seen a lot of him as he walked laps around the practice field last year.
*John Marshall interviewed with the team about becoming the Raiders' defensive coordinator today.
He was the defensive coordinator at Seattle and has held that job with the 49ers, too.
As for Cable, an announcement of his hiring should come next week if he indeed does get the job.
Because until it becomes official, there's never any way to predict what the Raiders will do.
