If the Raiders fire Dennis Allen, should Saints re-hire him?

Prior to joining the Broncos, Allen was an assistant coach for five seasons with New Orleans, first as assistant defensive line coach (2006-07), then as defensive backs coach (2008-10).

Under Allenís direction in 2010, the Saintsí secondary allowed an NFL-low 13 touchdown passes while ranking fourth in the NFL in net passing yards per game (193.9).

In 2009, Allen tutored a secondary that played a key role in helping the Saints to their first Super Bowl victory. His unit accounted for an NFL-high six interception returns for touchdowns and totaled 22 picks en route to their championship. One of his pupils, cornerback Tracy Porter, sealed the Saintsí 31-17 win over Indianapolis by returning a Manning interception 74 yards for a touchdown late in the game.

He also helped revitalize the career of safety Darren Sharper, who in 2009 tied for the NFL lead with nine interceptions. Sharper joined safety Roman Harper in forming the first pair of defensive backs in franchise history to make the Pro Bowl in the same season.

In 2008, his first year as secondary coach, Allen helped the Saints overcome season-ending injuries to both starting cornerbacks and contributed to a defense that held five opponents under 200 yards passing.

Allen assisted in tutoring the Saintsí defensive line from 2006-07, helping defensive end Will Smith become a Pro Bowler in 2006 after posting 10Ĺ sacks and forcing three fumbles

Only if Rob signs off on him. I have total faith in Rob Ryan and if he wants the guy then ok, otherwise... No.
