The Fritz Pollard Alliance said Wednesday it is "deeply concerned by reports" that Raiders owner Mark Davis reached an agreement with Gruden before interviewing any minority candidates.
The Oakland Raiders have their head coach their new head coach place for the long-term future with Jon Gruden agreeing to a 10-year deal with the team. The Raiders did interview two minorities, Bobby Johnson, the Raiders former tight ends coach, and Tee Martin, the former offensive coordinator at USC.
Cable earned a strong reputation with the Seahawks after developing late-round picks and converted defensive linemen into starters on the offensive line, garnering a few head-coaching interviews in recent years.
What Nancy Kerrigan thinks of 'I, Tonya'
"I was at the national [figure skating] championships this week so I didn't watch the Golden Globes ", Kerrigan said. She also spent a fair amount of time at the Globes trying to rewrite Tonya's biographical history.
Gruden was signed to a 10-year contract worth as much as $100 million to replace Jack Del Rio, who was sacked on the same day as the Raiders' season finale. Cable then led the Raiders in 2009 and 2010, and finished with a 17-27 record before former owner Al Davis elected not to renew Cable's contract.
Cable served as the Raiders' head coach from 2008 through 2010, but his stint was hardly a success.
In August of 2009, Cable reportedly was involved in a physical alteraction with defensive assistant Randy Hanson that resulted in Hanson suffering a broken jaw. Napa police did not press charges. It's also clear that the Raiders got their man in Cable.

The Rooney Rule requires National Football League teams to interview a minority candidate for the head coaching job.
The hiring of Cable will also net a happier running back in Marshawn Lynch, who had his glory years in the Pacific Northwest with Cable as his offensive line coach.
The Raiders' offensive line is considered one of the better units in the AFC, but it took a step back in 2017 after a terrific 2016 season.
Kane to break all English goal records, says Pochettino
Just one minute later and Harry Kane crowned himself Tottenham Hotspur's all time top-scorer in the Premier League. This game should be a far more open affair, allowing Tottenham's attack to trouble Everton's defensive frailties.
The Seahawks fired Cable along with offensive coordinator Darren Bevell after finishing 9-7 to miss the playoffs for the first time since 2011.
