Oakland Raiders head coach Tom Cable punched one of his assistants on Aug. 5 at the team's training camp headquarters in Napa, Calif., several media outlets reported on Monday.

The Web site National Football Post first reported that defensive assistant Randy Hanson was punched in the jaw by another member of the Raiders staff. Unidentified sources later told Fanhouse.com that Cable attacked the third-year assistant.

Hanson reportedly did not want to pursue the matter, but staff at Queen of the Valley Hospital alerted authorities, according to Fanhouse.com.

"The victim didn't even want any police action taken," Napa Police Lt. Brian McGovern told the Web site, "but we were following hospital policy that authorities be contacted in cases where there may have been an assault."

Hanson suffered a fractured jaw, and as a result Cable could face felony charges, according to the Web site. But McGovern said, according to the Web site, that the Napa Police consider the matter closed "unless we are re-contacted by the victim, and the victim changes their mind that they want us to follow through and pursue an investigation. At this point we're not doing anything else with it."

McGovern said the police report has not been made public over privacy concerns.

Cable had a regularly scheduled meeting with the media scheduled for 8:30 p.m. ET on Monday.

The story originated here...

I don't know what to make of this but I have a lot of respect for Tom Cable as a head coach, and now I have even more respect for him. I read about this earlier, and it said all the players and assistant coaches weren't talking because they were afraid to. Looks like Cable has instilled some fear in those guys, which could be a good thing.

Or not.

Supposedly, the assistant coach verbally assaulted Cable at a coach's meeting, and Cable went nuts. I don't know if that type of fear is good. We don't yet know what the ramifications are of the incident. But, if any similar violence is demonstrated in the future, it will be labelled a "pattern," no doubt with significant legal and professional implications.

More details come out: The cabinet did it!

But Cable told ESPN's Mark Schlereth later Monday that no punches were thrown.

That's backed up by what former NFL scout Daniel Jeremiah told ESPN's Chris Mortensen. Jeremiah's "reliable source" said that Hanson broke a facial bone when his cheek hit a cabinet in a team meeting room when Cable flipped him out of his chair.

Jeremiah also wrote on his Twitter page that Cable reacted when Hanson spoke profanely to defensive coordinator John Marshall. Cable rebuked Hanson, then pushed his chair, which caused the injury.

Yup... I agree with this, especially since listening to Lance this morning.

Were they agreeing?I heard the back end of them saying some stuff about it. I just think that teams try and round up the wagons in these cases.

NFL looking into it

Quote:
The Raiders are used to this—constant drama, controversy, potential distractions.

Lane Kiffin, Cable’s predecessor, was fired last September for cause after what owner Al Davis described as acts of insubordination and lying. Kiffin filed a grievance and is seeking two months pay for the time he was unemployed before being hired at the University of Tennessee.

The Raiders sent a letter to Tennessee in January, explaining how they believe Kiffin breached his contract, violated NFL rules and was insubordinate despite warnings from Davis.

Cable replaced Kiffin four games into the 2008 season.

In 2003, Raiders linebacker Bill Romanowski punched teammate Marcus Williams during practice, shattering Williams’ jaw. Williams later filed a civil lawsuit and was awarded $340,000 in damages.

Also, there was former coach Bill Callahan calling his players “the dumbest team in America” in 2003, Randy Moss(notes) quitting on his team during his two-year stint in Oakland, and former coach Art Shell benching and then suspending receiver Jerry Porter(notes) for insubordination.

“It’s just another day around here,” running back Justin Fargas(notes) said. “Things wouldn’t be normal if there wasn’t some controversy.”
