Dennis Allen joins Saintsí staff

Posted by Michael David Smith on January 20, 2015, 7:06 AM EST Dennis Allen, who was fired after four games as the Raidersí head coach last year, has found a new job.

Allen will join the Saintsí staff, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

This will be Allenís second stint as a Saints assistant. He was previously on the Saintsí staff from 2006 to 2010, first coaching the defensive line and then coaching the secondary. Allen will now have to mesh with Saints defensive coordinator Rob Ryan, who wasnít there during Allenís previous tenure with the Saints.

Wonder who is getting let go.

Big step down for Allen though, goes from HC to a position coach...

Good move for the Saints, now let's see who walks.

I was thinking the same thing. I wonder how he would do as DC.

I don't quite get the love for Allen but it couldn't hurt to have a little extra help with the coaching on the defensive side of the ball.

"a senior defensive role"
I assume he'll have a big say in everything, with focus on DB's?

YES!

After a string of losses, it's nice to have a gain!
