MOBILE, ALA. -- The Saints have hired former Ole Miss Coach Ed Orgeron as their defensive line coach. The South Louisiana native will replace Marion Hobby, who left to become a defensive coordinator at Duke University earlier this month.

Orgeron, 46, has spent his entire 23-year coaching career in the college ranks. But he said he has always been interested in making the leap to the NFL.

"I think it's an outstanding opportunity for me, especially going back home," said Orgeron, who is from Larose and played at South Lafourche High School and Northwestern State. "I'm just very excited. Especially after talking to Sean (Payton) these last few days, it was a no-brainer where I wanted to go." Full Story – Picayune
