any way we can convince them to take McCoy instead of Allen? we can sweeten the deal by throwing in Knowshon Moreno and an exercise bicycle.

This totally sucks as I was looking forward to having some continuity on D for the first time in a long time.

However, on the bright side this is not a good hire by the Raiders. The guy is totally unproven and has been a coordinator for one season. And it's not like our D was amazing, I think we ranked in the 20's.

Who cares.

All this does is telegraph that Oakland's primary concern is finding ways to stop Tebow.

Maybe staying in house?

Ron Milus maybe? He's a secondary coach like Fox and Allen are in their roots and has been coaching for Fox for several years now.

He's a solid coach and he'll be missed.
For Allen, it seems like a great opportunity, but we're talking Raiders here...
Anything worse than 8-8 next season will get him fired and with Palmer and too many holes on the offense, I'd say it's quite likely.

I personally liked Allen, but once he's a Raider, he's dead to me.

This is still Fox's defense, so I don't think it will hurt too much.

Hopefully the improvements were down to Fox more so than Allen.

It's near impossible to find a good coordinator. I don't expect us luck into another one for another three coaches. It seems like it takes a few to get to one. I just hope we give whoever comes in more than one season. It's ridiculous we can't find someone we like who wants to be a coordinator. Why can't we find some old guy who doesn't want to be a head coach?

Unfortunately they were not. They were all Allen. The good news is Fox seems to know which coach's are good. The bad news is he is also loyal to his own and is as likely to higher an internal candidate as he is bring someone in.

This really, really sucks.

BTW, I don't think Allen will make a good head coach. I think he's too inexperienced. I think this was a bad move on his end.

Dennis Allen is the leading candidate in Oakland
Posted by Michael David Smith on January 24, 2012, 11:57 AM EST



Broncos defensive coordinator Dennis Allen is the leading candidate to become the next head coach of the Oakland Raiders.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen report that the Raiders have identified Allen as their top choice, although there are still some “final steps” that need to be taken care of before they can come to an agreement.

The news comes as something of a surprise because Raiders General Manager Reggie McKenzie has made clear from the beginning that he wants to bring in his own candidate, and McKenzie has no ties with Allen. It was widely reported when McKenzie fired Hue Jackson that Packers assistant head coach and linebackers coach Winston Moss, who had a good working relationship with McKenzie in Green Bay, was the leading candidate in Oakland. But that no longer appears to be the case.

The Raiders have already told other candidates, including Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg and Bears offensive coordinator Mike Tice, that they are no longer in consideration.

The 39-year-old Allen was a starting defensive back at Texas A&M in the 1990s but never got further than a training-camp appearance with the Bills in the NFL. His coaching career began as a graduate assistant at Texas A&M, and he then moved on to Tulsa before getting stints as an assistant with the Falcons and Saints. John Fox hired him in Denver a year ago.

Allen would be the first head coach with a defensive background the Raiders have hired since John Madden.
