ALAMEDA, Calif. | The Oakland Raiders are denying a report by ESPN that they have made a decision to bring Tom Cable back as coach next season.

Senior executive John Herrera says owner Al Davis’ evaluation process of Cable “is ongoing and has not reached a conclusion.” He also says the team has not made any statement saying Cable would not be back next season.

ESPN reported earlier Saturday that Davis had decided to retain Cable for next season.

Cable’s status is in question after he went 5-11 in his first full season as coach and failed to develop JaMarcus Russell into a legitimate NFL quarterback. He has been talking with Davis since the season ended Jan. 3 about the direction of the franchise.
