Raiders ready to fire Dennis Allen

The Oakland Raiders may be ready to fire head coach Dennis Allen.

Allen has been rumored to be on the hot seat for weeks and recently team owner Mark Davis turned down a request by Allen to give his assistant coaches contract extensions. That ownership denied the coaches request sheds a lot of light on their current view of Allen.

The Raiders are 4-10 this season and will be looking to draft a quarterback early in the 2014 Draft. The team may opt to pair their future signal caller with a new head coach.

Oakland will finish out the season with games against San Diego and Denver. They have lost four straight games. Under Allen the Raiders finished 4-12 last season.
