Football: 2 women accuse Raiders coach of violent behavior

Associated Press

The former wife of Oakland Raiders coach Tom Cable and a recent girlfriend tell ESPN he has a history of violent behavior toward women.

Sandy Cable and Marie Lutz said on “Outside the Lines” that Cable hit them during relationships going back more than 20 years.

Cable told The Associated Press on Sunday the only time he struck a woman was more than 20 years ago when he said Sandy Cable committed adultery. Cable said in a statement he slapped her with an open hand and he’s “felt sorrow about that moment ever since.”

The Raiders coach recently was accused by assistant coach Randy Hanson of breaking his jaw during a fight in a coaches meeting. A California district attorney chose not to pursue charges.
