Oakland Raiders retain Dennis Allen as head coach

The Oakland Raiders held a lengthy meeting on Tuesday between owner Mark Davis and head coach Dennis Allen. There were some questions about the nature of the meeting and it left many wondering what Allen’s future with the team would be, but it turns out that the two sides were simply learning from last season and looking forward to the future as they prepare for 2014.

No one’s job was harmed in the making of the meeting.

“We met [Tuesday] evening at the Raider facility, and the meeting went really well,” Davis said, via “We talked about a lot of things, from personnel issues to the coaches to a review of the past season to the draft and our needs for next season.

“We’re ready to rock and roll.”

Allen has two years remaining on his four-year deal in Oakland.

While he has been able to hang on to his job now, he will need to improve on the 4-12 records that he has put together over the past two years if he wants to have a brighter future with the team.
