Tony Sparano named interim head coach of the Oakland Raiders on Tuesday

Oakland California. Oakland Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie has named Tony Sparano as the interim head coach of the football team on Tuesday.
Sparano succeeds Dennis Allen who was hired by McKenzie before the start of the 2012 regular football season. Allen's record as the head coach of the Raiders was 8-28. Allen was fired on Monday by the Raiders management.
Sparano worked under Allen as his assistant head coach and offensive line coach since the 2013 football season.
Sparano was the former head coach of the Miami Dolphins from 2008-2011. At least the Raiders have a head coach that has experience coaching a football team. It remains to be seen if Sparano will be the head coach of the Raiders after the current football season ends.
It is a possibility that McKenzie will be hiring another football coach either within the Raider organization or hire a coach from another football team at the conclusion of the current football season.
The Raiders in the 2014 football season have a record of 0 wins and four losses. The Raiders use the slogan "Commitment To Excellence".
The Raiders next football game will be on October 12 when they host their American Football Conference Western Division rival the San Diego Chargers.
What has me scratching my head is why did McKenzie fire Hue Jackson after the Raiders finished the 2011 regular football season with a record of 8-8? Hopefully McKenzie will find a football coach that will be able to revive the franchise that has not won a Super Bowl since the 1983 when the franchise was called the Los Angeles Raiders.
