AP source: Raiders fire coach Dennis Allen

ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) The Oakland Raiders have fired coach Dennis Allen four games into his third season.
A person with knowledge of the move confirmed the dismissal on Monday night on condition of anonymity because it had not been announced by the team. The firing was first reported by Fox Sports.
The decision comes one day after the team lost its 10th straight contest dating to last season, 38-14 to Miami in London.
Allen was the first head coach hired by Oakland after the death of longtime owner Al Davis. His 8-28 record is the worst for the franchise since before Davis arrived in 1963.
