Owner Davis says Allen remains Raiders coach


ALAMEDA, Calif. — Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis told ESPN.com in a phone interview Tuesday night that Dennis Allen remains the team’s coach and said he was amused by the drama surrounding his end-of-season meeting with him Tuesday.

“We met this evening at the Raider facility, and the meeting went really well,” Davis said. “We talked about a lot of things, from personnel issues to the coaches to a review of the past season to the draft and our needs for next season.

“We’re ready to rock and roll.”

Davis, who called the meeting end-of-season “protocol,” said Allen’s job security was not an issue and that the two of them would meet Wednesday with general manager Reggie McKenzie to talk about the future.

Davis did not want to talk specifically about the status of the assistants Allen wants to retain or whether there was a hang-up over one-year or two-year extensions. ESPN senior NFL writer John Clayton reported earlier in the evening that “at least six” assistants had been retained.
