Raiders | Dennis Allen's future uncertain

Tue, 07 Jan 2014 11:11:22 -0800

Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen's future with the team is in question, and there appears to be a difference in opinion between Allen and owner Mark Davis on the fate of several assistant coaches. The two will have another meeting Tuesday, Jan. 7, and the main topic will be Allen's vision for the club. Allen wants to keep his assistant coaches with two-year contracts, but he's being met with resistance from Davis, who wants only one-year deals for the coaches. Allen is expected to be kept on as head coach. Only offensive coordinator Greg Olson and linebackers coach Bob M. Sanders are currently under contract.

Wed, 23 Sep 2009 15:22:59 -0700

Chris Brown, of BuffaloBills.com, reports Buffalo Bills DT Kyle Williams has recorded four quarterback hits in two games this season and credits the defensive coaches for allowing him to be more instinctual. "[Defensive line coach Bob Sanders] and [defensive coordinator Perry Fewell] have talked to me and said, 'Just go.' The past couple of years I've just been in my gap almost all the time, and if the play came to my gap then I'd make a bunch of plays. But now they're freeing me up and saying, 'Sometimes you can go and take a shot and try to make a play.' And that's been the difference," Williams said.

Packers | Defense undergoing minor changes

Wed, 07 Jun 2006 21:18:06 -0700

Rob Reischel, of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, reports Green Bay Packers defensive coordinator Bob Sanders will bring his own style to the Packers defense. The main difference players have noticed between Sanders and former defensive coordinator Jim Bates has been Sanders' calm personality, "I may do things in a different fashion than Jim did. But I still think I show the same enthusiasm, and the same things we emphasized when Jim was here we'll still emphasize." Sanders will run the same defense as last season for the Packers with a few minor changes that may include the aggressiveness of the defense, because the players will be more familiar in their second year in the system.
