As head coach of the Atlanta Falcons, Dan Reeves gave Dennis Allen his first NFL coaching job. The former NFL head coach told Wednesday that he thinks Allen will be successful as head coach of the Raiders.

"You could tell Dennis had a bright future," Reeves said. "All the things you need to have as a head coach, I think Dennis has those."

Only his record as Raiders head coach will tell, but the initial response from football minds seems to be that Reggie McKenzie found a rising star. Are you supportive of the hire?
