<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">I wouldn&#39;t be surprised if the Saints promote assistant LBs coach Michael Hodges to fill the spot vacated by former LBs coach Mike Nolan, who left to join the Cowboys coaching staff.

I just want the best person for the job. Sometimes I wonder if Payton promotes from within because it's easier than having to go find a new person - even if that person isn't the best choice.

This isn't to say that Hodges wouldn't be worthy of the job.

Don't know anything about Hodges. If they do promote him to LB'ers Coach, I hope he can be as good of a teacher as Nolan was. We can't afford for Linebackers to regress.

could just as easily be that he bought into the system. He was a defensive assistant for two years before being moved to LB assistant so Nolan must have seen something in him if he got promoted and if he bought into what he was doing then he presents continuity.

Here’s a bio on him. I’d be cool with it if Nolan thought fondly of him and the rest of the staff thinks he’d be the right man for the job. 8 years coaching experience and former LBer in college.

The Optimist says maybe he's the one who brought Nolan back alive
