ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) The Oakland Raiders fired coach Dennis Allen on Monday night four games into his third season.

The decision was announced soon after the Raiders (0-4) returned from London, where they lost their 10th straight game dating to last season, 34-14 to the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. The firing was first reported by Fox Sports.
