Dennis Allen, Raiders to talk again

Denver Broncos defensive coordinator Dennis Allen has been invited to interview a second time for the Oakland Raiders’ head coaching vacancy, according to league sources.

The Raiders also are said to be considering another coach, but the fact that Allen is thought to be the first candidate asked to interview a second time is a sign he is one of the favorites, if not the favorite, for the job.

Allen’s second interview with the Raiders is expected to take place this week at the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala.

No idea whether Allen will make for a good head coach, but we already know he's a terrific DC, and that's only after one season in the position. So as much as it would sting for him to end up in Oakland, who knows how he'd do there. What is certain here is that losing him would hurt the Broncos in a big way. (h/t RSH, Esq)

Meanwhile, Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie says the team could name a new head coach as soon as Saturday.
