NFL to 'look into' whether Raiders violated Rooney Rule

The Oakland Raiders have added Tom Cable to their coaching staff, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

The Rooney Rule requires teams to interview at least one minority candidate as part of an open process.

Coach Gruden got things started with his opening statement.

The Fritz Pollard Alliance called for the investigation on Wednesday out of concern that Raiders owner Mark Davis came to an agreement with Gruden before the team interviewed any minority candidates as required by the National Football League since 2003.

That stance changed during Gruden's introductory news conference on Tuesday, when Raiders owner Mark Davis said he met with him on Christmas Eve, and felt "pretty confident that he was all-in" after their meeting.

The 53-year-old Cable worked as the Raiders offensive line coach in 2007 before becoming the team's interim head coach four games into the 2008 season after Lane Kiffin was sacked. The Raiders fired Jack Del Rio a week later and the team officially hired Gruden on Saturday. "And that's the term that we were using in our discussions and everything, are you all-in?"

Twins agree to terms with free-agent reliever Addison Reed
The terms of the deal, which is still pending a physical, are 2 years and slightly less than $17 million, according to Rosenthal. The AL average a year ago was 1.31, but not surprisingly, relievers were quite a bit lower (1.17) than starters (1.4).

(NYSE:XOM) Position Raised by Calamos Advisors LLC
The fund owned 99,931 shares of the oil and gas company's stock after acquiring an additional 5,276 shares during the quarter. The oil and gas company reported $0.93 EPS for the quarter, beating the Thomson Reuters' consensus estimate of $0.89 by $0.04.

Hawaiians sent terrifying, false warning of inbound ballistic missile
Travel and tourism in Hawaii are learning how a technical error may be able to put tourism safety on the line. Officials quickly confirmed afterward that the alert was a false alarm and had been sent out by mistake.

That is the official timeline for the Raiders head coaching search.

With the Raiders having the talent to compete right away given the right guidance, there's a chance that Gruden may actually turn this time into a Super Bowl title contender in the very near future.

But they're making a total sham of the Rooney Rule. Although Gruden has a Super Bowl title to his credit and was successful during his first stint with the Raiders, he hasn't coached in almost a decade and there's no telling whether he'll be able to adapt to the modern era of coaching in the NFL.

Jack Del Rio was sacked immediately after the Raiders week 17 loss to the Chargers.

His tenure ended shortly after the "Tuck Rule" loss to the New England Patriots when he was traded the following month to Tampa Bay for two first-round draft picks, two second-rounders and $8 million. Overall, he is 95-81 in 11 regular seasons and 100-85 including the postseason.
