Newark (N.J.) Central rising senior linebacker Mohammad Marcus Gilchrist Jersey Kamara received his Rutgers offer this Graham Gano Womens Jersey time last year after standing out at one of Rutgers’ East Coast Elite camps. Fast forward one year and he is a priority prospect which the staff would love to add to the fold for linebacker depth. The 6-2, 205-pounder attended last weekend’s camp and worked out in front of the staff, and was one of the top performers there, despite working through a lower body injury.

But the Raiders needed a new general manager, and it’s perfectly reasonable for a new GM to hire his own head coach. On January 5, 2012, Reggie McKenzie took over as GM. Five days later, Jackson was out. Two weeks after that, Dennis Allen was in. 

Allen lasted two-and-a-quarter seasons. He won just eight of 36 games. 

It didn’t help that the previous regime traded a 2012 first-rounder and a 2013 second-rounder for quarterback Carson Palmer, who struggled under Allen in his only full season with the Raiders. The offense fell off a cliff with the defensive-minded Allen in control, and replacing offensive coordinator Greg Knapp with Greg Olson after the 2012 season didn’t help. 

Allen’s Raiders were blown out time and again throughout his tenure, with a 38-14 loss in London at the hands of a mediocre Dolphins team serving as the straw that broke the camel’s back. 

He was fired during the team’s Week 5 bye.
