Dennis Allen

Defensive Coordinator

College: Texas A&M

Hometown: Hurst, TX


Now in his second stint in New Orleans, Dennis Allen enters his sixth full season as the team's defensive coordinator in his 12th campaign with the club after he was re-hired by Head Coach Sean Payton in 2015. Allen's resume includes 25 years of coaching experience, including the last 19 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 three seasons in run defense and finished in the top five in the four major yardage and opponent point categories in 2020, while also developing a promising group of young defenders mixed with veteran leaders.
