Aaron Glenn brings 19 years of playing, front office and coaching experience to the Saints staff in his first season in New Orleans.

From 2014-15, Glenn served as the assistant secondary coach with the Cleveland Browns. In a 2015 campaign where starting cornerback Joe Haden played in only five games due to injuries, Cleveland’s secondary was led by veterans in S Donte Whitner and CB Tramon Williams, who led the defensive backfield with 81 and 69 tackles respectively.

In 2014, Glenn worked with a defensive backs unit that garnered Pro Bowl honors from S Tashaun Gipson, Haden and Whitner, marking the first time in team history that three defensive backs were selected to the Pro Bowl. The Browns led the NFL in opponent passer rating (74.1), completion percentage (57.1) and passes defensed (99). Cleveland finished second in the league with 21 interceptions, the team’s highest total since 2008. They also finished fifth in the league in yards per pass attempt (6.44), fifth in red zone defense (46.3) and ninth in points per game (21.1). Cleveland was also the only team to have two players with at least 18 passes defensed, as Haden led the team and finished second in the league with 20, while CB Buster Skrine tied for fourth with 18. Despite missing the final five games, Gipson finished second in the NFL with six interceptions, the most by a Brown since 2010.

Prior to joining the Browns, Glenn spent two seasons (2012-13) in the New York Jets front office. He served as a college area scout in 2013, after a season as a pro personnel scout.

A first-round pick (12th overall) by the Jets in 1994 out of Texas A&M, Glenn started 176 of his 205 career games during his tenure with New York (1994-2001), Houston (2002-04), Dallas (2005-06), Jacksonville (2007) and New Orleans (2008). A three-time Pro Bowler (1997-98, 2002), Glenn recorded 661 career tackles, 41 interceptions and 167 passes defensed. He scored eight career touchdowns, including six interceptions returns, a 96-yard kickoff return and a 104-yard return on a missed field goal.

Glenn earned a degree in business management from Texas A&M, where he was a two-time All-American, departing as the school’s all-time leader in passes defensed in a season (20), season punt-return average (19.9) and punt return yards in a game (131). In 2003, he established the Aaron Glenn Foundation, which supports education and health initiatives for families and children.
