The Saints will need to find a new secondary coach this offseason because Aaron Glenn is on his way out. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, The Detroit Lions are hiring Glenn as their defensive coordinator. He follows Dan Campbell, who is now Detroit’s head coach.

Glenn coached the Saints’ defensive backs for the last five years, arriving in New Orleans in 2016. The Saints were his second NFL team as a coach, previously working with the Browns as their assistant DBs coach.

Glenn was an up-and-coming candidate this offseason, and even interviewed with the Jets for their head-coaching vacancy. The Lions are getting a strong leader to work alongside Campbell, while this leaves a void on Sean Payton’s coaching staff in New Orleans.
