Spagnuolo to Become Saints’ Defensive Coordinator, AP Reports

Jan. 20 (Bloomberg) -- Steve Spagnuolo will become defensive coordinator for the New Orleans Saints less than three weeks after being fired as coach of the St. Louis Rams, the Associated Press reported, citing a person familiar with the decision.

Spagnuolo, 52, was fired Jan. 2 after the Rams went 2-14 to tie the Indianapolis Colts for the worst record in the National Football League. He had a 10-38 record since joining St. Louis in January 2009.

Spagnuolo replaces Gregg Williams, who was New Orleans’ defensive coordinator the past three seasons. He went to the Rams, who hired Jeff Fisher as head coach.

Before taking over in St. Louis, Spagnuolo had top 10 defenses with the New York Giants in the 2007 and 2008 seasons, AP reported. His 2007 defense led the NFL with 53 sacks and the 2008 unit was sixth in the league with 42.
