Thomas Lee Cable, Jr, (born 1964) is an American football coach, and currently the interim head coach for the National Football League's Oakland Raiders after Lane Kiffin was fired September 30th, 2008 by owner Al Davis. Cable was the offensive line coach in 2006 for the NFL's Atlanta Falcons under head coach Jim Mora, who was dismissed at the end of the season. Cable was the offensive coordinator for the UCLA Bruins for two seasons (2004-2005) under head coach Karl Dorrell.

Tom Cable was the head coach at the University of Idaho, his alma mater from 2000-2003. At Idaho, Cable compiled a record of 11-35 (.239) in four straight losing seasons. Idaho did not renew Cable's contract at the conclusion of the 2003 season, and he was quickly replaced by Nick Holt. Five of Cable's losses at Idaho were to lower Division I-AA schools, while one of his wins was against a I-AA school.

Cable played on the offensive line for the Idaho Vandals for head coaches Dennis Erickson and Keith Gilbertson, blocking for quarterback Scott Linehan. He was a starting guard for three seasons (1984-1986), and had a brief stay with the Indianapolis Colts in 1987 before his coaching career began.

Cable played high school football in Snohomish, Washington, northeast of Seattle.
