Dennis Allen is staying in New Orleans.
The Saints defensive coordinator is expected to receive a new deal with the organization, sources told NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport on Sunday.
The 46-year-old Allen has overseen defensive coordinating duties in New Orleans since 2015. Since 2006, he has held a position on Sean Payton's Saints staff for all but four seasons. After wallowing as one of the league's worst units in 2015 and 2016, the Saints' defense has improved mightily over the last two seasons, ranking 14th in both points and yards allowed in 2018.
