THE RAIDERS WOULD HIRE DENNIS ALLEN AS THEIR NEW HEAD COACH
Mon, 30 Jan 2012 04:07 PM EST

The Oakland Raiders will hire Broncos defensive coordinator Dennis Allen as chief trainer, according to league sources.

The two parts spent much of Tues. night reviewing out a contract and the deal is agreed to in principle but has not been signed, sources announced. Baseball odds

New director Reggie McKenzie decided on his actual coach precisely 2 weeks after he was employed. He right away discharged Hue Jackson, who went 8-8 in his just season as coach, and commenced the research.

Allen, a relative unfamiliar to fans, was a finalist for the Rams ‘ coaching job, according to resources, and would have been under robust thought had Jeff Fisher not opted for St. Louis. Baseball spreads

Allen interviewed with the Raiders last week and then for a 2nd time Tuesday. Oakland then commenced targeting its seek and zeroing in on Allen in recent days, informing the other candidates they were no more under concern, according to resources.

Allen will be the 1st new Raiders coach to come from the defensive side of the ball since late owner Al Davis employed linebackers coach John Madden previous to the 1969 season. Madden won 103 games in ten seasons and won Oakland’s first Super Bowl after the 1976 season.

Afterwards Madden retired, Davis completely employed offensive coaches: Tom Flores, Mike Shanahan, Art Shell, Mike White, Joe Bugel, Jon Gruden, Bill Callahan, Norv Turner, Shell again, Lane Kiffin, Tom Wire and Jackson. Allen will be Oakland’s seventh coach since the 2003 season in his 1st head training job at any point. The Raiders have not had a successful history or made the playoffs since Callahan took them to the Super Bowl after the 2002 season.

But there have been lot of changes for the Raiders since Davis died October 8.His son, Mark, took control of the team and employed McKenzie as managing director after the time to take over many of the on-field and personnel choices that Davis had made during his just about half-century with the organization.

McKenzie right away fired Jackson after signing his contract January 10 and started a research for the new head coach. He interviewed Allen, Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg, former Miami interim coach Todd Bowles, Saints offensive coordinator Pete Carmichael Jr. and Green Bay assistants Winston Moss and Dom Capers.

With McKenzie having spent about twenty years with the Packers, his previous associates in Green Bay were originally considered to be the tops.

But as an alternative the Raiders hired Allen from division-rival Denver. The last time the Raiders hired a previous Broncos helper as head coach was Shanahan in 1988.

In his 1st season as coordinator in Denver, Allen helped the Broncos advance from allowing a league-worst 29.4 points and 390.8 yards per game to ranking Twentieth in yards (357.8) and 24th in points (24.4) this season on the way to an American Football Conference West title.

The Broncos amplified their sack total from 23 to 41 as the Broncos were tied for the 6th-most blitzes on pass plays in the league the actual season.

Allen had served as New Orleans’ supplementary coach the previous five seasons and had also coached for Atlanta. He runs a 4-3 defense that the Raiders have used the previous 7 seasons.

The Raiders, however, struggled mightily on defense this last season despite giving big commitments in the offseason to Richard Seymour, Kamerion Wimbley and Stanford Routt. Oakland had franchise worst in touchdown passes authorized (31), yards per carry (5.1), yards passing (4,262) and total yards (6,201), while giving up the third-most points (433) in team history.

Oakland joined this year’s Tampa Bay team as two of the four groups to permit at the very least 30 TD passes and 5.0 yards per carry in a season, a distinction realized previously by only the 1950 Baltimore Colts and 1952 Dallas Texans. The Raiders additionally became the 6th team since the 1970 coalition to allow at least 2,000 yards rushing and 4,000 yards
passing in a season.

The Broncos will now be looking for their 7th defensive coordinator in the past 7 seasons.
