Robb Akey’s Idaho football team just returned from the Bay Area, where former Vandal coach and current Oakland Raiders head man Tom Cable is under heat for his team’s 1-4 record and a preseason fight he had with then-assistant Randy Hanson. Akey was asked today about the validity of a report claiming Cable met with the Vandals while they were in San Jose. “No, we didn’t have any boxing matches this week,” Akey replied in jest.
Cable allegedly punched Hanson in an Aug. 5 incident, which is under review by Napa County authorities. Hanson told Yahoo! Sports this past weekend that Cable threatened his life during the incident.
