Steve Spagnuolo To Join The New Orleans Saints As Defensive Coordinator
By Spike Eskin
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Well, it looks like Juan Castillo might get a second chance to get the Eagles defense to perform up to expectations.
94 WIP’s Anthony Gargano is reporting that Steve Spagnuolo, former Eagles assistant under Defensive Coordinator Jim Johnson, will not return to the Eagles and instead will head to New Orleans to be Defensive Coordinator for the Saints.
Rumors swirled after the Eagles season ended that Spagnuolo might return to Philadelphia. When Spagnuolo was officially let go from his job as St. Louis Rams Head Coach, the rumors grew stronger.
This may open the door to retain current Defensive Coordinator Juan Castillo, whose team’s shaky start gave way to an Eagles defense that was much better during the second half of the season.
