An anonymous New Orleans Saints player said defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo should be fired, calling Spagnuolo "a control freak" who "treats people like crap," the Times-Picayune reported late Tuesday.
"Trust me, all the guys were being politically correct this season when answering questions," the player said. "It's bad."
The Saints defense set the NFL record for most yards allowed this season with 7,042. The unit was 31st in scoring this season, giving up 28.4 points per game. It was Spagnuolo's first season with the Saints after a three-year stint as head coach of the St. Louis Rams.
