Spagnuolo Spanked! Saints Release Defensive Coach
You knew it was coming. The players were grumbling and the fans were screaming. The worst defense in NFL history is not something that endears players to their coach.This comes from a team only two seasons removed from a Superbowl championship.
The Saints released Steve Spagnuolo and Secondary Coach Ken Flajole yesterday. In a statement Sean Payton said . “I personally want to thank Steve and Ken for their contributions during what was an unprecedented 2012 season,” said Saints Head Coach Sean Payton. “Philosophically we are changing our defense to a 3-4 alignment and right now is the best time to accomplish this transition.” No word on who will replace either coach. The only thing for certain is that for this defense .... there is nowhere to go but up.
