I think anybody from the Raiders coaching carousel since Jon Gruden should be excluded from this list. Joe Bugel belongs on there for sure, but with Al Davis's abysmal attitude towards coaches, you were pretty much guaranteed to get abysmal coaching results no matter who was coaching.

Bill Callahan turned his back on the team after Rich Gannon went down

Norv Turner failed as HC with the redskins and Raiders, but inherited a decent chargers team but I think they are slowly fading away

Art Shell was the last Raiders HC to post a winning record prior to Gruden but he never had the team to begin with

Lane Kiffin had never been a head coach and since his dismisal, has coached at 2 different colleges and still hasn't proven himself as a Head coach

Tom Cable was actually given the longevity needed to rebuild a franchise and was let go after he finally got us going in the right direction. Cable deserves another chance at NFL Head Coaching.

Hue Jackson wasn't given a fair chance due to a chaotic chain of events (including the death of Al Davis). I think Hue would do all right if given a second chance

I have always been a fan of Richard Simmons. He can wear the pink leotard any day of the weak and coach the silver and bleak. He's fun and full of enthusiasm
