ALAMEDA – Raiders head coach Dennis Allen and owner Mark Davis are set to meet on Tuesday night away from the team facility, a source told CSN Raiders Insider Scott Bair and reporter Fallon Smith.
The source, someone with intimate knowledge of the situation, said on Tuesday at 7 p.m. that it could be happening "as we speak.”
The meeting is the final step to Allen being formally retained as head coach in 2014.
“Nothing has changed,” the source said.
Davis reserves the right to change his mind, but that is highly unlikely because contracts were drawn up for assistants with expiring contracts. Several assistants have reportedly signed 1-year deals, although they haven’t been fully executed.
Allen met with his staff at the team facility on Tuesday afternoon, but declined comment on a meeting with Davis.
“I’ve got nothing for you guys right now,” Allen said around 5 p.m. on Tuesday.
He was in a good mood as he left the facility. Additional sources have indicated that Allen was to be retained unless something drastic happened in the off-site meeting.
