Every indication coming from Oakland is that Raiders coach Dennis Allen is safe, despite a pair of 4-12 records as he and General Manager Reggie McKenzie work on a raze-and-rebuild.
But Allen should find out for sure next week.
According to CSNBayArea.com, owner Mark Davis is scheduled to meet with Allen next Monday to inform him of a final decision.
While nothing can be assumed as following a logical path when it comes to the Davis family and personnel decisions, the fact they’re waiting until next week is probably a good sign for Allen.
If they were going to start a coaching search, they’d be a week behind five others by waiting to fire Allen. So unless there’s a big fish Davis thinks he has on the line, and might reel in over the weekend, Allen appears set to get another chance.
