Assistant who had his jaw broken rejoins Raiders

ALAMEDA – Randy Hanson, who accused Oakland Raiders head coach Tom Cable of assault after a training camp scuffle, has returned to work in the team’s personnel department.

Hanson had been employed as an assistant defensive backs coach before the Aug. 5 incident and had not been around the Raiders’ facilities since.

He accused Cable of assaulting him during a meeting at the team’s training camp hotel in Napa, which resulted in Hanson being treated for a broken jaw.

Cable denied any wrongdoing and Napa County District Attorney Gary Lieberstein declined to pursue charges against the head coach following an investigation.

Hanson and his attorney, John McGuinn, had also raised the possibility of a civil lawsuit.

Hanson arrived at the team’s headquarters on Wednesday and went to work.

Cable said he was surprised by news of Hanson’s return.

“Sure, but right now my focus is this football team,” Cable said. “That’s behind us and we’re moving forward.”
