McKenzie: There’s no negotiations (with Allen)

McKenzie to interview Denver's Allen tonight, could offer job

Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie said he will meet with Denver defensive coordinator Dennis Allen tonight to discuss the Raiders’ coaching vacancy. McKenzie also told that no job has been offered to Allen, nor are they in any “negotiations,” as reported elsewhere.

“I will meet with Dennis Allen tonight,” McKenzie said during the South team’s Senior Bowl workout at Ladd-Peebles Stadium. “And after tonight, depending on our conversation …that’s when.” Meaning, that’s when McKenzie will decide whether or not to offer the job to Allen.

“There’s no negotiations (right now),” he said. So Allen, who will be interviewing for the second time with McKenzie, could lock the job up tonight? “He could,” McKenzie said. “Depends. He’s got a lot of stuff he needs to answer. Nah, it’s not a lock, irregardless of other people’s reports.”
