Dennis Allen to have 2nd interview


To be honest...I don't really know much about this guy so here's what I found on Wikipedia:

In 2002, Allen’s first year with the Falcons, when he assisted in coaching the defensive backfield, the club tied for third in the NFL with 24 interceptions and improved from 30th vs. the pass in 2001 to 16th the following year.

Over his last two years in Atlanta, the Falcons’ defensive line was the anchor of the defense. In 2004, Atlanta led the NFL for the first time in club history with 48 sacks and the unit sent DE Patrick Kerney to the Pro Bowl. In 2005 DT Rod Coleman represented the club in the postseason all-star game and the Falcons notched 37 sacks.[citation needed]

In 2006, Allen was in charge of the Saints' defensive line, who combined for over 290 tackles, 28.5 sacks, six forced fumbles and six fumble recoveries. The season was highlighted by the Pro Bowl selection DE Will Smith.[citation needed]

On January 24, 2011, Allen was hired by the Denver Broncos to become their Defensive Coordinator.[citation needed]

Coaching tree

NFL head coaches under whom Dennis Allen has served:

I still think that going for a defensive minded head coach is the way to go for this team and the guy has obviously produced results wherever he has gone thus far. Hopefully Bowles is still in the mix and we make a move on someone by the end of the week. I'm all for taking the time to see who is out there but I think by now Reggie should have a good indication as to what is available in the market.

I'm having a really hard time deciding on which candidate I'm pulling for at this point. I was on the Moss bandwagon but I read and article that when he interviewed for the Rams HC job in 2009, he didn't come prepared to talk X's and O's and basically said that he would delegate all those activities and just act as a motivator. While being a motivator is a key ingredient to be being a good HC...you have to have a full understanding of the game and be able to talk schemes and game plan and without that kind of knowledge...you don't have the ingredients to be the best leader of a team.

Does anyone else know much about the guy that they can share?
