SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. (AP) - A former Oakland Raiders assistant coach is facing up to four years in state prison after being convicted of striking a man with a beer bottle outside a California bar.

The San Luis Obispo Tribune ( http://bit.ly/ZNHehs) reported Monday that jurors found Randy Hanson guilty of felony battery and misdemeanor assault.

Hanson is best known for alleging in 2009 that then-Raiders head coach Tom Cable broke his jaw and teeth during a fight at a hotel.

Hanson testified he acted in self-defense after 51-year-old James Kelsey approached him at the Pismo Beach bar in August and taunted him about Cable. Hanson conceded he remembered little about the night because he'd had 10 glasses of wine.

Kelsey testified the attack left him with a broken nose and concussion.

Sentencing is scheduled for June 10. Defense attorney Ilan Funke-Bilu says he'll ask the judge then to reduce the felony battery charge to a misdemeanor.
