Raiders’ Terrelle Pryor Calls Dennis Allen A ‘Great Leader’
“Personally, I love Coach Allen. He’s a great leader. He’s a great leader. The thing I really liked about him, he didn’t change. When we started losing, he didn’t change one bit. A lot of guys crack under pressure. I think coach Allen handled himself. We look at that stuff (as players). I think he did a phenomenal job this year. I have a lot of respect for Coach Allen ... I respect coach Allen, but that’s really not my call. That’s Mr. Davis’ and Reggie’s, and really, Mr. Davis’."At this point in time, Allen seems poised to return to Oakland for a third year. Although that's and oddity considering the team's recent history of parting ways with the head coach after two years, Allen may have earned the right to return with the team set to rebuild through the NFL Draft and with a considerable amount of cap space available. All signs point to Allen returning, but anything can happen. Jon Gruden rumors will continue to swirl until a decision in Oakland has been made.
