The Raiders announced Tuesday that they will not exercise the option on Tom Cable's contract, ending his tenure as the team's head coach.

Cable was informed of the Raiders' decision on Tuesday after guiding Oakland to a 17-27 record since he was promoted to interim head coach to take over for Lane Kiffin four games into the 2008 season. Cable had served as the team's offensive line coach since the start of the ’07 season.

The Raiders improved to 8-8 this season, which was their best record in eight years, but they missed the playoffs and managing general partner Al Davis opted to make a change, even though Cable had widespread support from his players.

Oakland's offensive coordinator, Hue Jackson, will become the next head coach, a source close to Jackson told the San Francisco Chronicle, but Raiders senior executive John Herrera denied that a decision had been made as to who would replace Cable.

"We have not talked to anybody yet," Herrera said, per the Chronicle. "Nothing has been done. This was the decision that had to be made first."
