(NEW YORK) — According to league sources, the Oakland Raiders will hire former Denver Broncos defensive coordinator Dennis Allen to be their next head coach.
The two sides spent much of Tuesday night working on an agreement and the contract is agreed to in principle but has not been signed, sources said.
The Raiders finished 8-8 this season under former head coach Hue Jackson, who was fired by new general manager Reggie McKenzie two weeks ago.
