Raiders Coach Allen Taken Back by Assistant Coach Steve Wisniewski Walking Away

New Raiders coach Dennis Allen was taken by surprise when assistant coach Steve Wisniewski decided to resign.

Wisniewski was to be part of the staff and his resignation came too late to bring in someone to replace him, Jerry McDonald of Bayareanewsgroup.com reports.

Wisniewski resigned for “personal reasons” — a decision which tackle Khalif Barnes said he learned of through text message two weeks earlier. Allen didn’t say when he was informed, but said the late notice led to making Frank Pollack the lone offensive line coach.

“It was a little bit of a surprise,” Allen told reporters Sunday. “Obviously, he has his personal reasons as to why he made that decision. I will say this, it was totally his decision. It was nobody else’s decision.”

    Whatever the case, Wiz is a Raider legend and stand up guy. He gets a pass. No way would he ever hurt his team.
