However, they also hired their new defensive coordinator. Just a few days after Williams agreed to become the Ram's coordinator, Steve Spagnuolo agreed to become the Saints' new coordinator.
Spagnuolo will bring a 4-3 defense to New Orleans, which is what the Saints already have. However, he will also bring a new system that involves a lot of coverage and less blitzing. Spagnuolo expects his four down linemen to get pressure and that frees up the secondary to just play in coverage.
The Saints' new defensive coordinator is known for getting the most out of his defensive line and that is exactly what the Saints need. If Spagnuolo can make the Saints' line play great football, then the other units will benefit directly from that.
Spagnuolo should be able to affect every one of the Saints current players. In fact, let's take a look at how Spagnuolo will change each of the Saints defensive players.
