Last month, ESPN reported that Saints G.M. Mickey Loomis had from 2002 through 2004 the ability to eavesdrop on conversations occurring among opposing coaches. To date, the Louisiana State Police have yet to decide whether to commence an official criminal probe.
Jim Varney of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports that the State Police have said no conclusion has been reached.
The FBI and the State Police launched a joint investigation after the allegation arose. Loomis said on PFT Live that he welcomed the effort, and that he would cooperate with authorities. It’s not known whether he has been contacted.
Complicating matters could be the statute of limitations, which could prevent a prosecution. Also, there may be no physical evidence to corroborate the claims that reportedly were made by a former employee who had been fired by the team, given recent renovations to the Superdome.
