Raiders coach Dennis Allen is rumored to have been fired

Start here


According to the following published report it appears that Oakland Raider head coach Dennis Allen is about to be fired…or not…or maybe by Tuesday…so here is the story …

An AP reporter tweeted saying Dennis Allen has been fired, then deleted the tweet and posted an apology.

How hot is the hot seat upon which Oakland Raiders coach Dennis Allen is sitting?

Try scalding.

A tweet on Sunday night from an AP reporter claimed that Allen had been fired, and that the team would announce it as soon as Tuesday. This came less than a week after CBS’ Jason La Canfora reported Allen could be fired if the Raiders laid an egg for the fourth week in a row.

The Raiders lost to the Dolphins 38-14 in London Sunday.

Interestingly, 45 minutes later, the tweet was deleted. The reporter, Terry Collins, posted this apology.

Still, in his own non-deleted words, there are “rumors.” And they certainly appear to have come from Raiders sources.

As they say, where there’s smoke, there’s fire.

Allen has been the Raiders head coach since 2012, when he left the Denver Broncos as defensive coordinator. He’s posted an 8-28 record with Oakland. Raiders fans, including former Bronco Bill Romanowski (ugh), have called for Allen’s head.

How hot is the hot seat upon which Oakland Raiders coach Dennis Allen is sitting? It just got measurably hotter.
