New Orleans Saints Fire Defensive Coordinator Steve Spagnuolo After Horrendous 2012 Season
Sean Payton was reinstated by the league yesterday, and by the looks of things, he is wasting no time getting back to work. Today, the New Orleans Saints announced that Defensive Coordinator Steve Spagnuolo and Secondary Coach Ken Flajole have been relieved of their duties.
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.
Sean Payton is already sending a message, showing that what we saw from the defense in 2012, will not be tolerated.
