New Orleans Saints announce changes for 2016 coaching staff

Saints head coach Sean Payton announced his five additions to his 2016 coaching staff Tuesday.

Payton has hired Dan Campbell as assistant head coach/tight ends, Ronald Curry as an offensive assistant, Peter Giunta as senior defensive assistant, Aaron Glenn as secondary coach, and Joe Lombardi as quarterbacks coach.

In addition to the new hires, Payton made four other moves to his staff. Dennis Allen will now serve as defensive coordinator, Dan Roushar will serve as offensive line coach, Brian Young will serve as pass rush specialist and Brendan Nugent will serve as an offensive assistant.

Campbell if you remember, was the interim coach of the Miami Dolphins for the final 12 games of the 2015 season. Miami went 5-7 in those 12 games.

Curry has 10 years experience as an NFL player and coach, last serving on the 49ers coaching staff. And yes, Joe Lombardi is related to the legendary Vince Lombardi. Joe is Vince’s grandson.
