ALAMEDA -- The Oakland Raiders denied a report by ESPN on Saturday that they have made a decision to bring Tom Cable back as coach next season, saying the evaluation process is still ongoing.

"We've never made any statement that the head coach would not be back, that has been media speculation from the beginning," senior executive John Herrera said in a statement to The Associated Press on Saturday night.

"We've consistently stated that we're going through an evaluation process to determine the direction that the organization needs to go. The process is ongoing and has not reached a conclusion."

ESPN reported earlier Saturday that Davis had decided to retain Cable for the final year of his contract in 2010, citing a source close to the situation.
