"The offensive line coach hasn't been hired cause that's where I live. And I have a plan for that. It'll be done here shortly. And out of respect to it, we'll get it done and when it's time, we'll announce it."
Raiders head coach Tom Cable
That plan was Jim Michalczik, who was busy taking part in National Letter of Intent day as the University of Washington's offensive coordinator the day Cable made that statement.
Michalczik was announced as the new offensive line coach Monday, bolting on new coach Steve Sarkisian and the Huskies.
You remember Sark, the former Raider quarterback coach that backed out of becoming the head coach in 2007, which led to Lane Kiffin getting the job.
While it doesn't have the same dramatics of James Cregg bolting after a game to work for Kiffin.
Michalczik had been at Cal (Go Bears!) the last seven years and was the assistant head coach, co-offensive coordinator and offensive line coach last season at Cal.
This completes Cable's staff unless he adds some quality control assistants.
*Didn't post this earlier because I was on the way to Monday Night Raw. LBs Ricky Brown and Jon Condo, WR Drew Carter and S Tyvon Branch were among the players that attended.
And I have to assume there were a lot of 49er fans in attendance considering I heard some boos when the Raiders were introduced.
