Report: Broncos Defensive Coordinator Dennis Allen to be Oakland Raiders Head Coach



Well, when Adam Schefter reports it, you know it's for sure. ESPN's NFL insider is reporting that Dennis Allen to the Oakland Raiders as their new head coach is a "done deal."

Allen is inheriting a very talented defense in Oakland, and an offense that has a ton of weapons. He is considered one of the hottest coaching prospects in the NFL and should be a great hire for the division rival Raiders.

Allen came to the Broncos after spending time with the New Orleans Saints as a defensive backs coach to be the defensive coordinator, and helped turn the Broncos' defense from one of the worst in the league to a very respectable unit.

With the departure of Allen, the Broncos will become the first team in the NFL-AFL merger to have seven different defensive coordinators in as many years.
