Oakland - The Oakland Raiders owner Al Davis sacked Lane Kiffin on Tuesday, then launched a stinging verbal attack on his young head coach.

"I'm firing him for cause. I'm not firing him for any other reason than cause," the 79-year-old Davis said.

"It's not about a personality conflict, it's flat-out accusation (of) lying and bringing shame to the organization.

"It's the first time I let anyone go based on what I call a flat-out liar."

Kiffin expected to be fired but didn't like the way Davis did it over the telephone then to go on television with intimate details of their conversations. "I had a real sick feeling watching it. It was just real pain," Kiffin said. "I was kind of embarrassed for him." Tom Cable, the offensive line coach, was named as replacement.
