Pic of the Day- It was hard to find one pic that said it all, but featured here is new head coach Dennis, new GM Reggie McKenzie, and new owner Mark Davis.
With the passing of Al Davis during the regular season last year, it was easy to expect that there just might be big changes for the upcoming season in Oakland. Mark Davis wasted no time clearing house in the front office and brought in a new GM Reggie McKenzie.
Mark Davis brought in a former Raider to take over the helm. Previously, McKenzie was a linebacker for the Raiders and was later the director of player personnel for the Green Bay Packers.
Soon after Reggie's arrival the search for a new head coach began with the firing of Hue jackson after only one season. A season where he raised the Raiders up to the best record in quite some time at 8-8. Hue was popular with Raider fans and with the players so it seemed like a curious move.
The search didn't take to long with the announcement of new head coach Dennis Allen. Dennis Allen is the 18th head coach for the Oakland Raiders of the National Football League. Allen previously coached for the Denver Broncos, New Orleans Saints, Atlanta Falcons, University of Tulsa and his alma mater, Texas A&M University. Dennis is promising to field a tough, smart, disciplined and committed football team, noting that organizations win games in the National Football League by more than talent alone.
