ALAMEDA, CA -- A person familiar with the fines says former Oakland Raiders coach Tom Cable has filed a grievance to recover $120,000 that the team penalized him during the final year of his contract.
The person spoke to The Associated Press on Sunday on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the situation. The story was first reported by ESPN.
The person did not say why the Raiders withheld the money from Cable's paychecks. ESPN reported owner Al Davis was upset that the Raiders lost two days of organized team activities in June for
violating NFL rules.
The Raiders announced on Jan. 4 that they would not exercise a $5 million, two-year option to keep Cable as coach.
Raiders senior executive John Herrera declined comment.
Cable coached at the University of Idaho from 2000-2003.
