Raiders owner Mark Davis seemed to suggest that HC Dennis Allen will be back in 2014.
“My main thought is that Dennis has a contract that he signed two years ago,” Davis said, the Mercury News. “He’s fulfilled two years of it and Reggie and I will sit down and talk, but yeah he’s the Raiders head coach right now.
“Really, the only people who’ve been replacing Dennis as head coach of the Raiders is the media. Am I correct? I’m still going by what I told you earlier, just let the process play itself out.”
Davis added that he expects to meet with both Allen and GM Reggie McKenize next week to discuss their current situation. Barring any unforeseen changing in Davis’ thinking, Allen appears to be safe.
Ian Rapoport is “strongly hearing” that Dennis Allen is likely to be back with the Oakland Raiders in 2014.
“I have been given indication that I will be back. I have every intention of being back,” Allen told reporters on Monday. “I haven’t been told that I won’t (be back).”
While Allen mentioned that he will have to “wait and see,” he has already met with Raiders owner Mark Davis, which is at the very least a positive indication.
Nothing is set in stone as of now given how the Raiders finished out the season.
Allen, 41, carries a 8-24 record in his two season with the Silver-and-Black. We’ll have more as the news is available.
