The Oakland Raiders have fired Coach Dennis Allen after four games into the 2014 season, a team official told The Times on Monday night.
Allen replaced Hue Jackson, who was fired by the team after the 2011 season. He was Oakland’s seventh head coach since the franchise traded coach Jon Gruden to Tampa Bay in 2001.
The Raiders, heading into their off week after playing Sunday in London, have not announced an interim coach, although team spokesman Will Kiss said an official announcement is expected Tuesday.
Two of Oakland's assistants have experience as NFL head coaches: Tony Sparano, assistant head coach/offensive line, and Al Saunders, senior offensive assistant.
