Earlier this year, as fans were disgusted with play calling, a 1-4 record and three consecutive blow-outs, rumors began to surface that Tom Cable would be fired and Rich Gannon would be named interim head coach.
Sorry Gannon fans; not going to happen. Gannon has no coaching experience whatsoever. If he was a coach, it would be in a QB coach capacity.
Gannon has also said that he has been reaching out to JaMarcus Russell; offering to tutor him completely at his own expense. Russell is still yet to acknowledge these offers.
Sorry again Gannon fans; it isn't going to happen. Gannon isn't exactly on good terms with the Raiders. They have tried to ban him two years in a row prior to Chief games, because of things he has said about the Raiders organization.
Russell likely has been told by the likes of John Herrara, not to associate with Gannon and not to engage in communication with him. If Russell were to accept his help, that would be complete insubordination. This in turn would put Russell in the dog house and possibly out of Oakland.
