The Oakland Raiders finally pulled the trigger and fired beleagured head coach Lane Kiffin today.
Kiffin’s replacement is Tom Cable who was named interim coach of the Raiders. Cable has a horrifically bad record as a head coach. He was 11-35 with the University of Idaho from 2000-2003. Idaho is, of course, the alma mater of vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin. She was at the school when the Vandals were voted the country’s Number One party school by Playboy magazine.

Raider fans will be encouraged to know that Idaho is the same school that famously produced Tom Walsh. He’s the bed-and-breakfast coordinator who ran Art Shell’s offense.
Idaho is also the coaching tree where Scott Linehan got his start. He was Idaho’s starting quarterback under Dennis Erickson.
