Former Denver Broncos head coach Josh McDaniels is rumored to have “intrigued” the Oakland Raiders as a potential replacement for Tom Cable.
McDaniels was pink slipped earlier this season by the Broncos following a 3-9 start to the season that included the second video taping scandal of his career.
Also on the team’s radar is current Stanford head coach Jim Harbaugh according to FOXSports.com’s Nancy Gay. Harbaugh is reportedly fond of owner Al Davis.
Offensive coordinator Hue Jackson is no doubt on the team’s list of potential candidates as well given his improvement on the offense this season.
Of course all of this speculation is moot if the Raiders opt to stick with Cable.
The Raiders decision on Cable’s tenure with the club will have to come before Jan. 18 when Al Davis is contractually obligated to inform him whether his option for the 2011 season will be picked up.
