College Football reporter Bruce Feldman tweeted that Saints defensive line coach Ryan Nielsen is no longer a candidate for the defensive coordinator at LSU and will remain in New Orleans.


ESPN's Adam Rittenberg is reporting that Nielsen is receiving a new 3-year contract with the Saints and the title of assistant head coach.

I suppose Sean Pay-me can care less that many, many Saints fans are LSU fans.

Perhaps, Coach O should stop being so public in declaring a particular candidate to be his primary choice. As a result of doing so, LSU has publicly been rebuffed not once but twice; and assuming the next person offered takes the job, he comes in with everyone knowing that he was LSU's 3rd choice. If Coach O had kept his mouth shut, others could have quietly turned down the job; and LSU could have claimed that whoever they eventually hired was the guy that they wanted all along.

No need to hear from you in regards to the DC search convo Rob. You’re probably still telling people they’re stupid and Pelini isn’t going anywhere.

CEO. You need to learn how to be a CEO. That includes having lawyers involved when you are looking into acquisitions. You could have had those lawyers make a request to review the Saints contracts weeks ago. This is continuing to make you not look professional when it comes to basic management [hiring and firing] of people.

If the Saint's contract was so strong, why did they offer him a new three year deal and a title of Assistant Head Coach? No need to do that if the contract was really binding. Neilsen's lawyers didn't think it was.

There are roughly 50 LSU players in the NFL. LSU had 14 players drafted last season. Almost none of LSU’s players ever interest the Sints. You cannot tell me that the Saints simply don’t draft LSU players due to draft order, etc. Screw the Saints.

Falcons fans say the same shite about UGA players. The facts are that NFL teams draft the best talent available. Just because the stars don't align between the local pro team and college team doesn't mean you have to throw a temper tantrum.
