The Oakland Raiders organization currently has incredible things happening to their team, beginning with the forming of new leadership now set in place. This occurrence was truly brought about with the passing of the legendary mastermind of football Al Davis who lived, breathed and slept Raiders football.
Al Davis, was not only the owner but throughout his time with the Raiders organization he ran all the football operations. Now it’s time for the Raiders to advance, towards their next chapter. Something the Oakland franchise has never seen before.
The process began earlier this month now owner Mark Davis son of the late Al hired Reggie McKenzie as the new general manager. McKenzie was the director of player operations of the Green Bay Packers and a former Raiders player. At the same time the Raiders fired then head coach Hue Jackson.
Opening up a new era of Raiders football, Monday the Raiders officially announced their new head coach Dennis Allen. The youngest head coach hired by the Raiders since John Gruden, who was the last winning coach known to Raider Nation. The 39-year-old Allen will be the first new Raiders coach to come from the defensive side of the ball since late owner Al Davis hired linebackers coach John Madden in 1969.
