Biography

Now in his second stint in New Orleans, Dennis Allen enters his fifth full season as the team's defensive coordinator in his eleventh campaign with the club after he was re-hired by Saints Head Coach Sean Payton in 2015. Allen's resume includes 24 years of coaching experience, including the last 18 in the National Football League. One of the most respected defensive minds in the NFL, Allen has developed and led an ascending New Orleans defense that has ranked in the NFL's top five the past two seasons in both run defense and sacks, while also developing a promising group of young defenders, mixed with veteran leaders and shrewd free agent acquisitions.
