Default Al Davis to Lane Kiffin: Just quit, baby.

Al Davis has reportedly drafted a letter of resignation for Lane Kiffin to sign. Kiffin has refused to do so. Davis must have woke up this morning and thought 'I want a new head coach' and was senile enough to think it would work. Does he have some head coach targeted to replace him? Who would want to work for this guy is probably a better question. Here is the link to Chris Mortenson's report. This is breaking so who knows how this plays out today.

That franchise is a mess and disgrace. Once Al Davis dies maybe the Raiders can be an NFL team again

Man, if that's true, Davis has to be the worst owner in the NFL. Just man up and fire the dude if you want a new coach already.

According to the first sentence in your article, it's Dennis Green.

Quote:
Oakland Raiders owner Al Davis has been pushing for coach Lane Kiffin to resign and is considering Dennis Green as a potential replacement, sources close to Kiffin and the team said.

Wasn't Dennis Green the coach and GM of the Cardinals or was he just the coach? Because if he wants personnel power in Oakland then the Raiders would probably be looking for a new head coach this time next year...

Denny Green is a solid NFL guy but how can Davis only give Kiffin one year? They even improved from last year. This deal smacks of senility. Didn't Al try a similar tactic with Shanahan back in his Raider days? Just sad and pathetic how someone who was once so great has become so utterly rotten.

One thing is for sure, if Kiffin is pushed out the door, many doors will open to him.....too late for HC consideration, but he would be a good addition to just about any coaching staff.

Maybe he'll go to Tampa Bay to work with his dad. I think he could get an opportunity as a college head coach as well.

Yeah, he will have no shortage of offers that is for sure. Any way you look at it, the guy is being done wrong. Maybe Al thought Lane could lure his dad Monte to Oakland and when he failed to be able to, he deemed Lane expendable in his master plan. If he was hiring a Cowher or a Carroll or someone like that, sure. maybe you make the move thinking that you found a better guy but is the rumored Green hiring a good thing? That is a powderkeg just waiting to go off. The day Green is fired, and all coaches get fired one day, there would be a press conference you need to set your TIVOs to record. I'd love to see Green go off on Al Davis.

Default Re: Al Davis to Lane Kiffin: Just quit, baby.

Kiffin inherited a horrible team and went 4-12 in his first season, not great, but it's ridiculous to kick him out after one year. They seemed to play at a much more respectable level with Kiffin at the helm than they did last year, which was fairly impressive considering all of the turmoil that team is involved in. That franchise is truly turning into a train wreck, I hope he comes to his senses and gives Kiffin a fair shot at this.

That reminds me of the Seinfeld episode where George tries to break up with a woman who he's dating three different times. Each time she tells him that she's not giving up on the relationship and they're not breaking up.

Al Davis is a freakin' train wreck.

Adam Schefter reported this on NFLN on Thursday night. Is ESPN claiming to have 'broken' this story or something? I was just reading the denials coming out of Raiderland, meaning it's probably true.

Default Re: Al Davis to Lane Kiffin: Just quit, baby.

Anybody with an urge to hire Dennis Green to turn their bad team around probably needs to reconsider. Yeah he had some great years in Minnesota when that team was loaded but it's all about what you're doing now and in his last four seasons as a head coach he's been 5-11, 6-10, 5-11, and 5-11.

Someone needs to tell Al Davis that expecting Dennis Green to turn around his 4-12 Raider team is a sure sign of senility. On the other hand if you're going to go coach somebody to 5-11 and then get shown the door when Grandpa Munster gets interested in bringing Art Shell back again Oakland is as good a place to do it as anywhere else. Hell, Al Davis probably thinks Art Shell and Dennis Green are the same guy.
