Raiders fired coach Dennis Allen.
This comes from FOX Sports' Jay Glazer, so we know it's legit this time after the Associated Press reported on Twitter late Sunday night that Allen was out, only to delete the tweet later. Allen isn't the main problem in Oakland, but he's the first one to take the fall. Others should be coming, and hopefully for the Raiders fans' sake it'll be GM Reggie McKenzie next. McKenzie went out and signed a plethora of over-the-hill washed-up veterans, and basically said, "Here ya go, Dennis. Good luck." Allen should take his fair share of blame, though. He's a defensive mind, and the Oakland defense flat-out stinks. Allen had an 8-28 career record. Sep 29 - 11:34 PM

Updating an earlier item, the Associated Press' Terry Collins has deleted his report that the Raiders are firing coach Dennis Allen.

The wording of Mr. Collins' tweet was bizarre, but we went forward since he was a reporter for the Associated Press. There is still a strong chance Allen is fired during the Raiders' Week 5 bye, but it has not happened yet. The Raiders don't depart London until Monday morning. It's unlikely any decisions will be finalized before they arrive back in Oakland.
Sep 28 - 10:21 PM

ESPN's Chris Mortensen passed along word on NFL Insiders Monday that there is already talk amongst NFL people that Raiders coach Dennis Allen's job could be in danger.

"I know a lot of people around the league are talking about it," said Mort. Allen is the least of the Raiders' problems, in our opinion, but every loser loves a scapegoat. Once again, the Raiders cobbled together the worst roster in the league, and once again they are atrociously bad. A full-house cleaning is desperately needed in Oakland. It was needed before the 2014 offseason began.
Sep 15 - 4:03 PM

ESPN Raiders reporter Paul Gutierrez expects the team to use more odd-man fronts on defense this season.

Meaning, more three- and five-man fronts. Oakland is deep at linebacker, including rookie Khalil Mack, second-year pro Sio Moore, and veterans Nick Roach, Kevin Burnett, and Miles Burris. LaMarr Woodley, a 3-4 OLB his entire career, was signed in the offseason. The Raiders could field a front of LE Justin Tuck, NT Pat Sims, RE Antonio Smith, OLBs Mack and Woodley, and ILBs Roach and Moore on certain passing downs. They have an interesting pass-rush corps.

Raiders owner Mark Davis confirms Dennis Allen will be back as the team's coach in 2014.

"We met (Tuesday) evening at the Raider facility, and the meeting went really well," Davis told ESPN. "We talked about a lot of things, from personnel issues to the coaches to a review of the past season to the draft and our needs for next season. ... We're ready to rock and roll." It's unclear how much, if any, danger Allen's job was actually in, but he's getting a deserved third season at the helm in Oakland. GM Reggie McKenzie's roster, and not Allen's coaching, was the problem in 2013. Neither McKenzie nor Allen is going to have much rope in 2014.

Updating an earlier item, CSN Bay Area reports Raiders coach Dennis Allen is still meeting with team owner Mark Davis.

It was reported earlier Tuesday that six of Allen's assistants had accepted one-year extensions, but CSN Bay Area's Scott Bair reports deals were "drawn up," but not "fully executed." Meanwhile, Davis himself denied to the Contra Costa Times that there's been any meeting thus far. Perhaps Allen isn't out of the woods yet, after all. The situation is unfolding in typically chaotic Raiders fashion.
Jan 7 - 10:21 PM

ESPN's Paul Gutierrez reports "at least" six Raiders assistants accepted one-year extensions Tuesday.

In other words, it appears Raiders coach Dennis Allen emerged from Tuesday's marathon meeting with the team's brain trust with his job still intact. A source tells Gutierrez that Allen is "probably" safe. Oakland has had issues shedding its dysfunctional ways since the October 2011 death of longtime owner Al Davis, but it would be stunning if Allen were cut loose following Tuesday's developments.
Jan 7 - 9:40 PM

Raiders coach Dennis Allen's status remains up in the air.

Allen had a marathon meeting with the Raiders' brain trust on Tuesday, but declined comment to the assembled media upon his departure. As tight lipped as any coach in the league, we wouldn't expect Allen to tip his hand before his status is settled. Firing Allen would be foolish for a team that overachieved for much of 2013, but owner Mark Davis appears to have some of his father's trademark impatience.
Jan 7 - 8:48 PM

A league source tells ESPN "the only people firing (Raiders coach) Dennis Allen right now are the media."

Owner Mark Davis strongly hinted Monday that Allen will be back in 2014, but the sides don't plan to have a formal meeting until next Tuesday. As was the case with Davis' father, there's always the chance that something could go haywire. Nevertheless, we'd expect Allen to get another chance to dig the Raiders out of their decade-plus hole.

Raiders owner Mark Davis "gave every indication" that coach Dennis Allen and GM Reggie McKenzie will return in 2014.

McKenzie is reportedly "on even firmer ground" than Allen. Davis threw lukewarm support behind Allen by saying, "My main thought is that Dennis has a contract that he signed two years ago. He’s fulfilled two years of it and Reggie and I will sit down and talk, but yeah he’s the Raiders head coach right now." Davis met with McKenzie on Monday and plans to sit down with Allen next week. Allen received indications that he's safe, but you never really know with Davis.
Mon, Dec 30, 2013 09:45:00 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is "strongly" hearing that the Raiders will retain coach Dennis Allen for 2014.

Allen is 8-24 through two seasons in Oakland. "I haven't been told that I won't (be back)," he told reporters Monday. We wouldn't consider this set in stone until owner Mark Davis confirms it, but at the moment it appears GM Reggie McKenzie and Allen will both get one more year to right the Raiders' ship.
Mon, Dec 30, 2013 04:35:00 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports owner Mark Davis recently "rejected" coach Dennis Allen's request to give the Raiders' assistant coaches contract extensions.

It's not just an ominous development for the assistants. It's bad news for Allen, whom NFL.com's Mike Silver recently reported is "very much on the hot seat," and whose job security may be decided based on the effort and performance level of his roster during the final two games. The 2013 Raiders are 4-10 and close out the season at San Diego, before hosting Peyton Manning's Broncos. Oakland has lost four consecutive games, and six of its last seven.
Sun, Dec 22, 2013 10:51:00 AM

NFL.com's Mike Silver reports Raiders coach Dennis Allen is "very much on the hot seat" with two games left in the season.

Citing a source familiar with owner Mark Davis' thinking, Silver reports the Raiders' Weeks 16-17 performance will be "crucial" in determining Allen's future with the club. If the Raiders' players "get embarrassed" or show any signs of regression, "Allen will likely be fired." Per Silver, GM Reggie McKenzie looks safe for now despite a mixed bag of acquisitions -- to be kind -- through two seasons on the job. Allen's record in two years as Raiders coach is 8-22. For Allen's part, we believe Oakland has played better for most of 2013 than its talent in place. McKenzie needs to upgrade the Raiders' roster, and soon.

SI's Peter King believes Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie "will be in trouble" next offseason unless the team's 2013 season is "significantly brighter" than 2012.

Owner Mark Davis recently made a power move above McKenzie's head by firing McKenzie's hand-picked PR man, Zak Gilbert. Gilbert's firing has become a big story, as by all accounts he had done an outstanding job of turning around the Raiders' public relations. It's perhaps a sign of things to come. McKenzie's first season on the job was abysmal. Numerous free-agent signings were busts, and the Raiders went 4-12. And we'd be shocked if their 2013 season were "significantly" better. There isn't a team in the NFL with less talent.
