Former Broncos defensive coordinator and current Raiders head coach Dennis Allen might find himself without a job following the conclusion of Sunday's game versus the Broncos.
After being hired away from Denver by Oakland following the 2011 season, Allen has accumulated an 8-23 record (.258 winning percentage) with the Raiders.
The Raiders have shown zero improvement under Allen and regressed from an 8-8 team in 2011 to a 4-12 team in 2012. Oakland with either finish the 2013 season at 4-12 or 5-11.
To make matters worse, Allen finds himself in an odd situation on the subject of quarterback Terrelle Pryor. Pryor's agent Jerome Stanley accused Allen of "setting [Pryor] up to fail," per Scott Bair of CSN Bay Area.
Allen responded to those claims earlier in the week, per Levi Damien of SB Nation:
First, I'd say that's the stupidest thing I've ever friggin' heard. No coach in their right mind ... This isn't The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. This isn't made-for-TV drama. This is football. We make our football decisions based solely on that, nothing other than that. So I don't really give it a lot of thought. I can't control the ignorance that might come out of somebody else's mouth, but I've talked to Terrelle about it. It's in situations like that you have to separate the player from the agent. He doesn't have control. I don't have control over those things that get said. In my book, it's really nothing. It's one person's opinion and I've moved on from it and ready to focus on the Broncos.
Although Sunday's game will be centered around the Broncos and their quest to gain home-field advantage in the AFC playoffs, the Raiders themselves will have some things to handle following the conclusion of the regular season.
