From my perspective this is ideal, as Knapp has been nothing short of a disaster but I have seen flashes of good stuff from Allen. Team clearly is still playing for him (compared with Hue Jackson who appeared to have lost them towards the end of last year) and the D improved markedly the last 5 games of the year.

He touched Dennis Allen's seat before the game.

Great move from Oakland, love it. Knapp was a disaster.

Good move by the Raiders.

I never understood why Knapp was appointed as OC, his scheme never fitted the strengths of the Raiders offensive players.

Hopefully Allen could look to bring an experienced OC who can make more use of the talents they have on offense.

Going to miss that Knapp meme with the captions but this was a good move by Oakland.

I am still confused on how he managed to take DMAC out of the offensive equation.

Worst OC in the NFL. This will without a doubt be his last coordinating gig. Dennis Allen is a moron for hiring him.

I laughed when they hired him. Said it was terrible back then. They were bringing in an OC who ran a ZBS and a passing attack that didn't fit their offensive personnel and best offensive player. Was a ridiculously dumb move.

Who hired Did Reggie ok this or was he already there ?

Regardless, good move sacking Knapp and keeping Allen (for at least one more year).

Reggie let Allen hire his staff.

Knew it was a terrible move then, and he was a colossal disaster that could've cost Allen his job.
