ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — The firing of Dennis Allen as head coach of the Oakland Raiders was announced Monday night. He was in his third year as coach and leaves the team with an 0-4 record this season.

The decision was announced soon after the Raiders returned from London, where they lost their 10th straight game dating to last season, 34-14 to the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. His final record was 8-28.

The Raiders have had 11 straight seasons without a winning record or a playoff berth. Oakland will now have its eighth coach since 2003.
