Assistant coach Randy Hanson has hired an attorney and has turned over his medical records to police, with the possibility of felony assault charges against the head coach.

According to the National Football Post, Hanson claims Cable attacked him in a meeting room two weeks ago, knocked him out of his chair, broke his jaw and was choking him, yelling "I'm going to kill you."

Cable supposedly was trying to get Hanson removed from the staff for months, with tensions rising along the way.

After all this, Hanson still wanted his job back. With that no longer an option, he is going to police.
