ALAMEDA -- Raiders coach Dennis Allen met with players as a group and individually Monday and was conducting himself as a man who would be the head coach in 2014.

Six coaches had been fired while Allen was talking with players -- Gary Kubiak (Texans), Greg Schiano (Buccaneers), Leslie Frazier (Vikings), Jim Schwartz (Lions), Mike Shanahan (Redskins) and Rob Chudzinski (Browns).

Allen is 8-24 in two seasons with the Raiders and has two years remaining on his contract. Owner Mark Davis was scheduled to meet with general manager Reggie McKenzie, then at some point brief Allen and the staff on how the club will proceed.

Running back Rashad Jennings said his meeting with Allen reviewed his performance over the season with a message of how the organization would go forward.

``I expect him to be here,'' running back Rashad Jennings said. ``Those are decisions that are not in our hands, but he's definitey the guy for the job.

Left tackle Jared Veldheer, asked if Allen said he would be back, said, ``Yes.''

Long-snapper Jon Condo said Allen was confident about the future but has been a Raider long enough to know things don't always go as expected.

I met with him individually and we met with him as a team and he said, `Hey, I'm going to be here,'' Condo said. ``Hue Jackson once said he was going to be here a lot longer than people in this room and he got canned a week after that.''

Allen is schedule meet with the media at 1 p.m. for his season-ending press conference.
