The Seattle Seahawks on Tuesday hired former Raiders coach Tom Cable to be their offensive line coach/assistant head coach at just about the time Raiders managing general partner Al Davis ripped Cable for his on- and off-field actions the past two years.

Cable joined the Raiders in 2007 as offensive line coach. He replaced the fired Lane Kiffin as head coach four games into the 2008 season and posted a 17-27 record.
