    Report: Raiders to fire defensive coordinator Marshall

    The Oakland Raiders will not bring back defensive coordinator John Marshall next season, according to the San Francisco Chronicle on Saturday, citing league sources.


    The newspaper reports that owner Al Davis has decided to move in a different direction, despite the team's improvement on defense in 2010.

    The team has not confirmed the move and Raiders senior executive John Herrera told the Chronicle that confidential staff evaluations took place last week.

    Oakland ranked 11th in total defense in 2010, Marshall's second season with the team. The Raiders defense allowed 322.8 yards per game and 23.2 points per game under Marshall this season.

    Davis fired coach Tom Cable following an 8-8 season and is expected to name offensive coordinator Hue Jackson as coach this week, according to the Chronicle.

    Marshall, 65, has 31 years of coaching experience in the NFL. He's served as defensive coordinator for the Atlanta Falcons, San Francisco 49ers, Carolina Panthers, Seattle Seahawks and Raiders.

    Wait... so they finally have a not losing season for the first time since 2002, so in response they fire their HC and DC and are willing to let two of their best (and their best) players walk away? Sounds about right.

    Sources: Tom Cable fined $120K by Oakland Raiders in 2010 - ESPN



    As former Oakland Raiders coach Tom Cable was attempting to lead his team to the playoffs this season, owner Al Davis began deducting $20,000 from each of his head coach’s paychecks until he had withheld $120,000 in fines, according to team sources.


    In turn, Cable filed a grievance against his owner with the NFL, becoming the latest Raiders head coach to be embroiled in a financial dispute with his owner.


    Now NFL commissioner Roger Goodell will appoint an arbitrator to whom the Raiders and Cable will have to submit legal arguments and witnesses. The arbitrator then will make the final ruling.


    The NFL is doing its due diligence to ascertain the exact reasons for the fines.

    While I'll complain about Norv and AJ and the like, I have to fall to my knees and thank the good lord above that our owner isn't a raging lunatic like Al Davis

    And to think he was an original Charger. It's sad to see him this way, he really was a great football man.
