Al Davis' loss is the Seattle Seahawks game. After Oakland Raiders head coach Tom Cable was fired, the Seahawks swooped in on Tuesday, hiring him as the offensive line coach. Head coach Pete Carroll has been busy on Tuesday, firing offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates and quickly making two hires, Cable and defensive line coach Todd Wash.

The Seahawks official Twitter account confirmed the move moments ago.

As head coach of the Raiders, Cable survived rocky times before leading the team to an 8-8 record. Surprisingly, Davis chose not to retain him as head coach, instead promoting Hue Jackson to the position, also on Tuesday. In Cable, Carroll gets an experienced assistant that will, apparently, be the second in command.

Carroll is moving fast, so stay tuned to our StoryStream for the latest coaching moves as the shakeup in Seattle continues.
