Raiders coach Dennis Allen expects to return

ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — Oakland Raiders coach Dennis Allen says he has been given indications that he will be brought back for a third season after winning just four games in each of his first two years.

Allen said Monday he has met with general manager Reggie McKenzie and will meet with owner Mark Davis soon about the future of the organization. Allen says he has not been guaranteed that he will return but does expect to be back.

Allen says he looks at this offseason as the beginning of the building process after he and McKenzie spent much of their first two years tearing down what late owner Al Davis had built.

The Raiders have gone 11 straight seasons without a playoff berth or winning record.
