Rams to interview Allen

Broncos' Dennis Allen drawing interest from St. Louis Rams in coaching search

The Broncos’ unexpected success in 2011 has helped their coordinators become hot head coaching candidates. According to a league source, the St. Louis Rams formally asked the Broncos’ permission today to interview Dennis Allen, Denver’s first-year defensive coordinator.

With the Broncos preparing for their second-round AFC playoff game Saturday at New England, the team has said Allen and McCoy can be interviewed for the head coaching positions, but not until Thursday afternoon.

Uh oh. How long does John Fox want to be a head coach?
