Seahawks poach the Saints of a defensive line coach


With the New Orleans Saints still in search of pieces to help fill the gaps of coaching staff that have recently left or been fired, they will need to find another one after the Seattle Seahawks have snagged one of the defensive line coaches.

According to Jason La Canfora, the Seahawks are hiring assistant defensive line coach Travis Jones and giving him a promotion to be their head defensive line coach.

Jones will have plenty of talent to work with since the Seahawks defensive line is known to be a set of pass rushers along with a defensive secondary that preys on the mistakes caused by a jittery quarterback.

You can now cue the nervousness from Saints fans as they have yet to replace major pieces like an offensive line coach as well as a major one in picking a new defensive coordinator.

    Well considering the Saints defensive line was putrid I don’t think that’s a terrible loss. D staff needs a whole new makeover.

      I was just about to add that when we get a new DC he’ll probably want to bring in some of his guys. I’m not nervous yet unless that DC is Rob Ryan. Like him personally, but his Defense rankings scares me.
