Oakland Raiders Coaching Rumors: Dennis Allen, Winston Moss And 'Mystery Candidate' Are Finalists For Job, According To Report

While Denver Broncos defensive coordinator Dennis Allen is supposedly the leading candidate to get the Oakland Raiders' vacant head coaching position, he isn't the only one left in general manager Reggie McKenzie's search. Allen, Winston Moss and a "mystery candidate" are the three finalist, according to CSN Bay Area's Paul Gutierrez.

Allen could wind up with the Raiders just one year after moving from coaching defensive backs in New Orleans to running the defense for the Denver Broncos and John Fox. But the Raiders do have contingency plans in any of their candidates are ruled out in one form or another.

If Allen leaves, the Broncos will now have seven different defensive coordinators in seven seasons. One of these days there will be stability at that coaching position.
