Raiders Fire Kiffin

By  | 

Lane Kiffin is finally out as coach of the Oakland Raiders.

The team announced the decision to fire Kiffin on Tuesday after weeks of speculation.

The Raiders say the move was made for cause, meaning they will likely try not to pay Kiffin the remainder of his salary owed under his contract. Kiffin's agent had no immediate comment.

Owner Al Davis says the 43-year-old Cable will replace Lane Kiffin, who was fired earlier Tuesday just four games into his second season.

Kiffin had a 5-15 record since being hired last year. He lost his final game 28-18 to San Diego on Sunday.
