An attorney representing injured Oakland Raiders assistant coach Randy Hanson will turn over medical records at the request of the Napa, Calif., police on Friday that show Hanson’s jaw is broken, multiple sources told the National Football Post.

John McGuinn, an Employment and Labor attorney based in San Francisco, has been retained by Hanson. Sources say that McGuinn will turn over records from an additional emergency room visit made Wednesday night near Hanson’s home in Livermore, Calif., that show a fracture in his upper jaw.

Head coach Tom Cable has not commented on the alleged assault, calling it, “an internal issue.” Numerous media outlets and Web sites have fingered Cable as the person who attacked Hanson.

On Thursday, Cable said in response to the latest report: “We’re still going to take care of it internally. The one thing I will tell you is, when all the facts come out, everything will be fine.”

Multiple sources have described the alleged assault on Aug. 5. According to the source in the latest report, Cable demoted Hanson from his job as an assistant defensive backs coach to doing “film work,”

Cable reportedly felt that Hanson confused the Raiders defensive backs. After a closed door meeting with with the defensive backs, Cable met with the coaches and told Hanson not to come to practice.

According to the source, it was in the meeting with the coaches, that included Cable, defensive coordinator John Marshall, defensive backs coach Lionel Washington and assistant defensive backs coach Willie Brown, that Cable allegedly came at Hanson from behind as he was verbally contesting what Marshall had said.

Hanson was knocked out of his chair and into a cabinet, the men fell to the floor where Cable attempted to choke Hanson until  they were broken up by the other coaches.

“I am going to kill you,” Cable said, allegedly, as he choked Hanson. ” I am going to kill you.”

Cable reduced Hanson’s role to breaking down film and told him he would not travel with the team.

Hanson met with managing general partner Al Davis in an attempt to circumvent coach Cable. Davis told him that he wouldn’t undermine the head coach. Davis offered Hanson any of three positions with the Raiders: pro personnel department, breaking down video or taking the money and shutting it down.

Hanson reportedly told Davis he did not like any of the three options.

According to the source, Davis called back the next day and spoke with Hanson again. Hanson reiterated that he wasn’t interested in any of the three options and hung up on Davis.

    This is some BULLSHIT! If Hanson was a real man he would have taken the hit…and moved on. He obviously did something to provoke the alleged “attack”.

  2. Upshaw63 says:

    Hanson is a punk, hopefully the players don’t get too sucked into this and play ball

  3. RaiderPilot says:

    I read on another site that Lane Kiffin had suspended Hanson last season. The problem is that Al Davis likes Hanson for some reason and kept him around. The most important thing is that the players retain focus and play Old School Raiders Football. Raider Nation!

    forget this peace of shit i hope his jawl never gets better maybe this is why the raiders DBs always afraid to hit cause we had pussy of a coach finally a real raider showed how to be a raider.
    Raider Nation til i DIE

  5. Pizza Man says:

    Looks like Cable’s in deep doo doo. At least Ted Tollner has head coaching experience.

  6. Hayward_Bay says:

    Hopefully Hanson will settle out of court and drop charges.. what a douche! Looks like he was being a problem for Al and Cable did what he had to do.

  7. DaGreatness says:

    Hansen is not a punk he was attacked from behind….I am a huge Cable fan, he needs to be held accountable for his actions as that is what he preaches….sorry Raider fans, just dont be ignorant..this guy has a broken jaw…Im sure i will get blasted for this but really…

  8. raiderlization says:

    Hansen is just how he acts a stubborn little punk! He wants a HC or DC job or what? LMAO! what is his beef? He was said to be confusing the DB’s and Safeties! What a jerk trying to undermine the progress of the team!. Then trying to extort AL? Little Man you will soon learn. LMAO!

  9. raiderlization says:

    Oh so verbally going after Marshall by the younger man was appropriate? This was clearly not the intent of Cable or anyone else to break the guys jaw. Hell in the military we would call this horse play! He was running his mouth and got what he asked for! To the detriment of the team Cable will probably have to pay a consequence. So give him 30 days probation! LMAO!

  10. 559Raider says:

    generally, People don’t get punched without some sort of provocation. Reports I’ve read reitorTe Hanson was cussing and running his mouth. Next time he’ll think twice about who to run his mouth to. On the plus side, I’m sure glad Al told him he wouldn’t undermine his head coach. Especiallly since Hanson was apparently one of Al’s preferred. When was the last time that was reported? Good sign my friends!

  11. irjonny24 says:

    it won’t go anywhere, cable might have a fine and some other action, but it won’t happen for a while…maybe not until the end of the season.

  12. raidr843 says:

    Its like deja vu all over again. I swear the media blows this up and provokes other columnists into having a feild day with the Raiders. All we need is one thing to get our players not focused on football and the undisciplined play and mouth running begins. The hole keeps getting deeper, is there ever going to be light at the end of this tunnel?

  13. rtsuperfly says:

    I THINK IT’S GOOD THAT CABLE PUT HANSEN IN HIS PLACE. IT SHOWS HE WILL NOT TOLLERATE THE BULLSHIT. IT’S JUST TO BAD HANSENS WEAK ASS JAW BROKE. WE NEVER WOULD HAVE HEARD A WORD ABOUT IT IF IT WASN’T FOR THAT. I THINK CABLE SHOWS THAT THE TEAM COMES FIRST, AND HE WILL DO WHAT HE HAS TO, TO GET THE RAIDERS WINNING AGAIN. GOOD JOB CABLE, YOU ARE DOING AN AWSOME JOB.IF HANSEN HAS ANY SELF DIGNITY HE WOULD DROP THE ISSUE AND HELP WIN SOME GAMES.

  14. 1nation says:

    Im with you guys you start running your mouth to the boss and your going to get the shit kicked out of you i got no problem with that. maybe this is a turning point for the Raiders finally a coach that comes in and lays down the law on players and coaches maybe this is what we have been missing. We all probably would have done the same thing if we were there. Listening to some little punk ass run his mouth while the coach is trying to build a winning team FUCK THAT ! You dont want to get on board then get the fuck out !

  15. destroySD says:

    what a lil bitch. davis offered to uphold his current contract and the dbag said no! shows hes looking for a big payday from this. i rreally hope the league doesnt take action on this either, i understand its different cause cable is the coach, but fights happen in camps EVERYDAY, without punishments. your doing a great job goodell, let this one go. and F! the media, those asses get off when our team does something like this. if this would have happened in seattle, houston, or jacksonville to name a few, this would be done by now.

  16. RAIDER_NATION_2010 says:

    HANSON IS A STRAIGHT OUT “PUSSY”. AND ITS GOOD THAT MR. DAVIS DID NOT WANT TO UNDERMINE CABLE, IT SHOWS THE AL HAS TOM’S BACK. FUCK HANSON, HE SHOULD GO ACROSS THE BAY AND JOIN THE TEAM OF FAGS THAT WE’RE GONNA BEAT SATURDAY!

  17. velarderaideraz says:

    Well at least Al likes Cable. Last year he took Sissys(hanson) side over kiffin. this year he told sissy(hanson)he wasn’t going to undermine the head coach WHAT. Has Al changed his wayz. This iz a good sign,hopefully his keeps his nose outta things. and we can have stability at the head coaching position. It goes 2 show u what kind of punk sissy(hanson)iz. Went 2 cry 2 Al and Al laughed at him. He probably deserved it. If he was a problem last year what does that tell u,he thought becauz Al took his side last year that he could flap his lips and get away wiyh it this year. SURPRIZE 2 HIM when Al took cables side.

  18. velarderaideraz says:

    Or if it happened in New England the media would not make it a big deal. The pats are the NFL’s golden boyz and it makes me SICK The pats should only have 2 titles. The NFL gave them that one in 01

  19. spwn474 says:

    i sure this doesnt means coaching chances cause it seems the guys like him

  20. HiMyNaMeIsCaLi says:

    this isnt affecting the players.. but i will say this.. if cable did punch the guy. he should be fined.. IF he broke his jaw. he should be thrown in jail. simple as that. who do we blame for this minor distraction. CABLE. not hanson. cable shoulda acted like the bigger man and just said fuck you and went about his day.i like how AL is staying how of this for the most part. and idk y people keep saying “why r ppl making this a big deal”… R U SERIOUS? HE THREATENED TO KILL SOMEBODY, WHILE CHOKING HIM, BREAKING HIS JAW!!!!… thats good enough reason to make a big deal out of it.. I LOVE THE RAIDERS.. SO WITH ALL THAT SHIT SAID. WALKER COME BACK PLAYER OF THE YEAR… WE COMIN’ FOR THAT BOWL.

  21. HiMyNaMeIsCaLi says:

    IT COULD MEAN A COACHING CHANGE. ESPECIALLY IF THEY THROW CABLES DUMBS ASS IN JAIL FOR THIS..

  22. raiderpapi says:

    Hanson’s looking for the civil suit because that’s where the money is and he will use the criminal to pressure Cable to settle. This situation is all about money now. Let’s wish Cable the best of luck, he’ll need it. Cable has to worry about his freedom and/or financial first and unfortunatly team second. All this while trying to side step and disciplanry action from the NFL.

  23. OaklandRaider2K says:

    Al Davis is da man . . . but his little fly on the wall (spy) Randy Hanson has turned on him and Big Al has only himself to blame here. Pay off your little “mole” Al, then beef up ARMED security so I don’t wake up to a headline like “Former Raider Coaching Assistant Goes on Shooting Spree at Raider Headquarters.” Hanson’s photo looks hauntingly like a mug shot to me. This is exactly the kind of problem we don’t need just as the Silver & Black is finally breaking into the clear and ready to get back in the race to a Super Bowl.
    Raider Love to RaiderBeat.com and The Raider Nation!!!!!

  24. ottosdad says:

    Well I think for a lawsuit like this you need witnesses. So I hope Willie, Lionel & John were looking at something else at the time or better yet saw hanson clumsily fall out of his chair on his own. Look at hansens pic on raiders.com. He looks like a methed out punk snithch. Further proof nothing positive can come from the name hanson.

  25. raiderpapi says:

    I agree ottosdad, if you look at Hanson’s eyes he looks like a man with inferiority & personality issues, to say the least. He will try to do his best to get revenge on Cable and the Raiders, he’s not thinking of getting another assistant coaches job in the future, what head coach would hire this guy after this situation of disloyalties. He’s looking to make a killing in a financial settlement and live off that.

  26. idahoaklandraider says:

    papia hit it right on the head, give him his salry ship him down the road

  27. wflucas says:

    all of this nonsense in alleged!!!!!! if you guys who are ready to throw cable under the bus have forgoten: in this country, you are innocent until proven guilty…. reserve judgement… i liked hanson, but he dissed the wrong person (Mr. Davis)… people recover from fractured jaws, but I’ve never seen or heard of anyone who recovered from the wrath of Al Davis… he is gonna burry this asshole! Hanson better not try to drag this shit out! it’s gonna overshadow all the good stuff we’ve been doing… I wish him a speedy recovery and hope he doesn’t mess up the mojo of the nation!

  28. wflucas says:

    CABLE BUMBAYE!!!!!!!!

  29. jesseaguilar says:

    DaGreatness are you gay? what world are you living in “you talk the talk and you walk the walk” simple be a man and take it. get up and fight another day fool handle it.

  30. ottosdad says:

    It’s now being reported Hanson decided to snitch because we termed him. This contradicts the reports he was regulated to watching films. And I assume he was termed “for cause” meaning no money.

  31. peglegged raider says:

    apparently Al didn’t offer him enough money, that is too bad cuz this shit just needs to go away! I love it that Als got Cables back for sure. the little bitch went runnin to daddy and daddy didn’t have no cookies in the cookie jar, so littlebitch went crying to mama(the man). you’re a pud wacker Hanson!!!

  32. peglegged raider says:

    RAIDERS

  33. runraiderrun says:

    AL DAVIS has to have a snitch or snitches on the team.who is this person that is “the person close to the situation” or these “multiple sources”.it’s odd that the local media can’t get the coverage of the team that they desire,because the raiders are limiting the media more than most teams.it’s this story and the previous others that are aiding the media blockage.AL DAVIS put a lockdown on the media and stories still seem to leak out.TWITTER?one snitch,i think,is SAM WILLIAMS.can anyone explain why he is on the team and gets resigned.i haven’t seen him make more than two actual decent plays,since he’s been on the team.i know he is a favorite of AL DAVIS,why?another is cornell green,no body wants him,but somehow he stills lines up.who continues to be left over from the team,when they change coaches,WILLIE BROWN!he’s a raider great-former players who are considered loyal to AL DAVIS,was at the supposed meeting where the situation happened and continues to be brought back year after year.who is taking Hansons’ position?could that be the reason we signed Manning,jr!a veteran that shouldn’t need as much attention from the lack of positional coaching.I KNOW IT’S NEGATIVE BUT IT’S ALSO REALISTIC,sorry.this is why AL DAVIS HAS TO BE HANDS ON and making scheme and personnel decisions.I personally believe that the snitching comes from middle managment/coaching and a single player.i lean towards SAM WILLIAMS and WILLIE BROWN and one other office person.AL DAVIS said last year he’s going to find out who was leaking information to the media,has he found the culprit?

  34. runraiderrun says:

    i pissed myself off,writing that sh*t.

  35. runraiderrun says:

    AL BETTER NOT FIRE CABLE

  36. runraiderrun says:

    where’s the coverage of the practices from Raiderbeat,i don’t want pictures?i want some reporting on the field!

  37. runraiderrun says:

    can we get an interview from dwayne board?so we can get some insight on our biggest problem,the defensive line.how about the linebacker coach,since the raiders are making that a big concern for some reason.on the field the defensive scheme will come to fruition the first week.are the players just as clueless as i am on what the team will do as far as blitzing when the season starts.if so,that’s not good for the players.they have to second guess themselves in practice,should i concentrate and/or perfect this blitzing thing or just go through the steps in practice,to prepare the offense for the regular season.practicing blitzing now and not using it in the regular season can not make the run defense any better.especially when it relates to the fundamentals of gap responsibility,that they keyed on the first part of camp.

  38. blackhole91 says:

    People don’t go to jail for breaking someone else’s jaw…..he’ll pay a hefty fine, sure. Then the NFL will fine him as well, but when its all said and done this will be mostly a non-issue. Some attourney just told Hanson that there was a possibility to make some money, so he’s taking the opportunity. Also, we don’t know that he tried to choke him much less threaten to kill him, so lets not just assume thats what happened just yet.

  39. HiMyNaMeIsCaLi says:

    BLACKHOLE91.. u can go to jail for fighting. its illegal.. ull get slapped with a fine aswell. IF you cause physical harm.(broken bones, etc.) you can go to jail for a while and be slapped with a fine. then get sued.

  40. velarderaideraz says:

    U can go 2 jail 4 that if u have a prior record. Otherwise he’ll probably b fined,pay a settlement 2 weezle(hanson)and suspended by the NFL,hopefully no more than 2 gms.Let’s face it NATION the NFL,and the media-ESPN-NFLnetwork,all the critics, and that FAT-SLOPPY-SLUG-Warren(go back 2 eatin your twinkies u fat bitch)Sapp r all raider haters. I say they all can go 2 HELL. GO RAIDERS……

  41. Diablo says:

    This will be a thorn in our side for some time and I hate it because we certainly DO NOT need this right now but our DB’s haven’t blown me away by any means except #21 who never even gets tested because of his talent. If coach says Hanson played a role in their sloppy play I say let him go, settle out of court, deal with the NFL, and move on. We now are riddled with injuries and will start the season missing most of our skilled players, we can’t stop the run consistently, and JR still has more work to do imo to prove he can score touchdowns in the red zone. We need this to be put away asap and try to get the right group of guys on the field to win games.
