St. Louis Rams Look In Direction Of Dennis Allen As Head Coach


The St. Louis Rams today asked the Denver Broncos permission to interview defensive coordinator Dennis Allen in their search for a new head coach. Allen just came to the team last year, and he’s had resounding success implementing an aggressive 4-3 defense in Denver.

Last week the Jacksonville Jaguars asked the Broncos permission to interview offensive coordinator Mike McCoy for their head coaching vacancy.

The Broncos told both teams that Allen and McCoy could interview, but not until after Thursday afternoon, as these men obviously have important tasks ahead of them.

With that said, do you think it’s right other NFL teams can begin the hiring process in the playoffs? Doesn’t it distract coaching candidates who are in the midst of making a playoff run?

Allen and McCoy have the Broncos best interest first, but it does take time and energy to interview for a new position. Here’s a situation where the coaches have to keep their mind in the game just as much as the players do.

    If either coach leaves for an interview before Saturday’s game he should be fired.
