Playing career

Allen was a highly-recruited (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Recruiting_%28college_athletics%29) defensive back (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Defensive_back) at L. D. Bell High School (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L._D._Bell_High_School) in Hurst, Texas (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hurst,_Texas) before choosing to follow in his father's footsteps and play for Texas A&M (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Texas_A%26M_Aggies). Allen was a 4-year letterman (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Letterman_%28sports%29) for the Aggies as a safety (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Safety_%28American_football_position%29) from 1992-1995. He started (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Starting_lineup) the final 21 games of his career on the top-rated Texas A&M "Wrecking Crew (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Texas_A%26M_Aggies_football#Wrecking_Crew)" defense (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Defense_%28sports%29). His fourth-quarter interception (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interception_%28football%29) clinched an 18-9 victory over rival Texas (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Texas_Longhorns_football) in 1993, sending the Aggies to their third-straight Cotton Bowl Classic (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cotton_Bowl_Classic). He won Southwest Conference (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Southwest_Conference) Defensive Player of the Week honors after intercepting two passes in a 36-14 win over Oklahoma (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oklahoma_Sooners_football) in 1994. Allen was signed as an undrafted (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Undrafted_sportsperson) free agent (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free_agent) by the Buffalo Bills (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buffalo_Bills) and competed in their training camp (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Football_League_Training_Camp) in 1996.

[edit (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Dennis_Allen_%28American_football% 29&action=edit&section=3)] College

Allen began his coaching career at his alma mater, serving as a graduate assistant coach under his old coach R. C. Slocum (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/R._C._Slocum) for four seasons (1996–1999), working primarily with the secondary. He then went on to Tulsa where he was a secondary coach for two seasons (2000–2001).
[edit (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Dennis_Allen_%28American_football% 29&action=edit&section=4)] National Football League

In 2002, Allen’s first year with the Falcons, when he assisted in coaching the defensive backfield, the club tied for third in the NFL with 24 interceptions and improved from 30th vs. the pass in 2001 to 16th the following year.
Over his last two years in Atlanta, the Falcons’ defensive line was the anchor of the defense. In 2004, Atlanta led the NFL for the first time in club history with 48 sacks (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quarterback_sack) and the unit sent DE (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Defensive_end) Patrick Kerney (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patrick_Kerney) to the Pro Bowl (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2005_Pro_Bowl). In 2005 DT (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Defensive_tackle) Rod Coleman (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roderick_Coleman) represented the club in the postseason all-star game and the Falcons notched 37 sacks.
In 2006, Allen was in charge of the Saints' defensive line, who combined for over 290 tackles (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tackle_%28football_move%29), 28.5 sacks, six forced fumbles (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fumble) and six fumble recoveries. The season was highlighted by the Pro Bowl selection DE Will Smith (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Will_Smith_%28American_football%29).

Good choice...we need either an elite cb def cord or someone who can inspire the def line to get off their azzes. Tired of going through def lineman and sub-par safeties and cbs.

He does both.

He learned from Gregg Williams who has some of the best blitz schemes in the league. He values DL play he values a good ballhawking secondary And he comes from a pressure based system that involves many types of blitzís and exotic things.

Dunno about Allen's preference, but my understanding was the Saints are a 4-3 defense that recently began using the 3-4 in some games (sometimes extensively) depending on the opponent and situation.

Soooo... you guys interviewing anyone? Why? Oh, no reason...

I agree dedhed...I would think Fox would want a guy who is ready to learn under him, yet bring some fresh ideas with him...I say get it done, so focus can go to the free agents and draft!

This is the most important part of the resume. I wouldn't mind this guy in Denver...:strong:

In 2006, Allen was in charge of the Saints' defensive line, who combined for over 290 tackles, 28.5 sacks, six forced fumbles and six fumble recoveries. The season was highlighted by the Pro Bowl selection DE Will Smith.

You know who their D-line coach is right now? Bill Johnson, former defensive line coach of your very own Denver Broncos before being replaced by Nunley. An upgrade, but not a big one. They are both excellent coaches.

Speaking of the Eagles, I heard Mike Lombardi on a Philly sports talk radio show this afternoon and said the Eagles are looking for a guy who can coach a hybrid defense (both 3 and 4 man fronts) and Allen is apparently that type of coach. This is probably the same thing Denver is looking to do which I'm very happy about.

I had a dream last that Allen was the guy. So there's that.

I'd like to see this kind of hire

A young DC is really what Denver needs. Imagine a young DC in GB right now doing what they are doing on D compared to two years ago he'd be up for HC consideration. Point is come here. A franchise at this point that will probably give you everything on D humanly possible. Turn it around in 2 years and become one of the hottest HC prospects out there. It's a high risk challenge but I want someone with some guts to take it on

Right, put your training wheels on and come to Denver, get some good experience under your belt and then move on. What we need in Denver right now is a coach that's been there, seen it and done it. No more coaches in diapers...please

Well let just see who we end up with. An experience coach or an up and comer. You know where I stand

I disagree that this is what we need in a DC. I agree completely that was the way to go with the HC.

But, having gone that route with the Fox hire, and adding in the fact that he's a defensive coach, I think we'd be better served with a young coach who can add some new ideas to Fox's time tested foundation.

I think adding a been there/done that DC to Fox would be redundant.

This. The DC will be running Fox's Defense and maybe implementing a twist or two every now and then but it will be Fox's. It would be good for him to learn under the HC

Weren't the Saints like last in the league in pass defense but first in interceptions their Super Bowl year?

That's my kinda guy. I like aggressive, risk-taking, bend-but-don't break defense.

Saints head coach Sean Payton spoke with the New Orleans Times-Picayune this week about his suddenly hot secondary coach Dennis Allen. Allen has already met with the Denver Broncos about their defensive coordinator job and is reportedly interviewing with Andy Reid and the Eagles today. Payton isn't surprised that Allen has become a seemingly hot commodity this offseason.

"It's a small league, and there aren't many secrets," Payton said. "His reputation has grown, and the word has gotten around. You can see it on film. He's extremely talented, and another thing about him, he's an extremely hard-working guy. He's a guy that's going to have more of these opportunities down the line."

Payton does understand that having success as a head coach means you're likely to start getting your assistants poached.

"It's always a tough thing, wanting your coaches to have the opportunity but not wanting to lose them," said Payton, who is particularly close friends with new Broncos Coach John Fox -- a good and bad thing in this case. "This experience of going through the interview process and getting his name out there is deserved. He has done a very good job. He's extremely well thought of within this building."
