Raiders’ head coach Dennis Allen could be fired this week, after suffering a blowout loss to the Dolphins in London. Terry Collins of the Associated Press tweeted that the Raiders have already fired Allen, and that the announcement could come as early as Tuesday. The tweet was later deleted, but captured in a retweet here by Jason Wilde of ESPNWisconsin (via Twitter).
The report has no elaboration, as Michael David Smith of Pro Football Talk points out, and it certainly could be challenged. However, Smith writes, it would not be a surprise if it was true, sooner rather than later.
If Allen is fired, it is expected that Tony Sparano will take over as the interim head coach, reports Adam Schefter of ESPN (via Twitter).
