The fate of the Oakland Raiders was put in the hands of Mark Davis after the passing of his father Al who served as the team’s owner and general manager. Mark, kept the owner role but handed the GM position to Reggie McKenzie and thus a new era was born. McKenzie hired Dennis Allen and their fates have been intertwined since. After another poor season many are thinking that Allen’s time in Oakland may be over. Allen will not however lose his job if McKenzie has anything to say about it.
A source has said that #Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie has recommended Dennis Allen be retained.

Allen and McKenzie share a vision of what they want the Oakland Raiders to look like and they want to see it through together.
