AP reports Dennis Allen fired, retracts report, apologizes
An Associated Press reporter Terry Collins has retracted a Tweet and apologized after reporting that Oakland Raiders coach Dennis Allen was fired.
Collins now is saying it was just rumors, not sources saying that a firing has happened.
Either way Allen is on the hot seat.
The reporter deleted his initial Tweet, which said Allen has been fired and an announcement could come Tuesday.
"Please disregard my recent tweet about the Raiders," Allen said. "These rumors haven't been confirmed by the AP. I'm sorry."
Not a good look for the wire service obviously.
