Oakland Raiders Hire Broncos' Dennis Allen, According To Report

According to a report from ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Oakland Raiders have settled on their man, and it's Denver Broncos defensive coordinator Dennis Allen.

Allen isn't the only Broncos coordinator who became a serious head coaching candidate in January; offensive coordinator Mike McCoy had a couple of interviews with Miami, but ended up missing out on that job.

Denver's next defensive coordinator will be its seventh DC in seven seasons.
