The Oakland Raiders have hired a new coach, find out who will lead the team in 2012 right here.
“The Oakland Raiders will hire Broncos defensive coordinator Dennis Allen as their next head coach, according to multiple reports.
Raiders Insider Paul Gutierrez learned that Allen was interviewing with general manager Reggie McKenzie Tuesday night.
McKenzie fired Hue Jackson shortly after being named the team’s first G.M. since the passing of longtime owner Al Davis.
The 2011 season was Allen’s first as defensive coordinator in Denver. Last year his defense ranked 11th in the NFL.
Allen’s NFL coaching career began with Atlanta in 2002, assisting with the secondary. He then moved to defensive assistant/quality control, with emphasis on the defensive line. He was hired by the Saints as assistant defensive line coach in 2006, then moved to secondary coach in 2008.” – CSNBayArea
