The Oakland Raiders fired Head Coach Dennis Allen after an 0-4 start, and they have named former Miami Dolphins head coach and current Oakland offensive line coach Tony Sparano as the interim leader.

This was supposed to be a year where the Raiders would finally have a winning season and possibly challenge for a playoff spot.
