Saints coach Sean Payton said he would look far and wide for the most talented coach available to be his next defensive coordinator.
He will start that search with Steve Spagnuolo. It wouldn’t surprise us if the search ended there as well.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports the former Rams head coach will meet with the Saints on Wednesday. We suspect New Orleans wouldn’t meet with the former head coach unless they were ready to hire him.
Spagnuolo may have his choice of jobs. Indianapolis could be interested and Philadelphia might also be a fit. New Orleans would seem to be the most attractive because of the presence of Drew Brees.
The quickest route for Spagnuolo to get back on the head coaching radar is to win another Super Bowl as a coordinator.
Unless, of course, Spags is already on the head coaching radar with the Colts.
