Dennis Allen quoted as he leaves the Raiders facility saying “The Raiders organization would be a second rate arena league.” The fuse was lit in last months NFL Draft when Allen preferred to draft QB Brett Smith of Wyoming with the 5th overall pick. General Manager Reggie McKenzie drafted Buffalo linebacker Khalil Mack instead. Smith went undrafted and Allen went off. “If i’m going to coach the team, I should have some say. What is this? Amateur hour? I should have stayed in Denver! look where they are.” McKenzie did not return ESPN’s request for an interview.

Allen will take over as the new Head Coach of the Ottawa RedBlacks on the Canadian Football League. His first order of business will be to sign Brett Smith.
