Saints promote Pace to director of player personnel


The Saints passed out a promotion to one of their own in the scouting department.

The team announced today that director of pro scouting Ryan Pace was named director of player personnel, and will oversee the personnel department. Pace has been with the Saints since 2001, working his way up from operations assistant to pro scout and beyond.

General Manager Mickey Loomis is still there running the Saints operations, but with his dual role over the top of the NBA Pelicans, having a trusted football guy in place alongside him is key.
