Going to see a lot of turnover this offseason on the staff and office side. Glad for him, but he was a good one.

Report: Saints DL coach Ryan Nielsen set to become LSU defensive coordinator

Posted by Josh Alper on January 18, 2021, 4:11 PM EST

Saints defensive line coach Ryan Nielsen is reportedly heading to a different job in Louisiana.

Jane Slater of NFL Media reports that Nielsen is finalizing a deal to become the defensive coordinator on Ed Orgeron’s staff at LSU. Nielsen informed Saints head coach Sean Payton of his intention to leave for Baton Rouge on Monday.

Nielsen just finished his fourth season on the Saints staff. The job was his first in the NFL after 15 years at the collegiate level. He joins former Panthers assistant Jake Peetz as coaches heading to LSU from the professional ranks.

The Saints are also expected to lose assistant head coach/tight ends coach Dan Campbell. Reports indicate the Lions are set to hire Campbell as their next head coach.

Just saw a tweet that his contract does not allow him to go back to college coaching without the saints waiving that clause in his contract, and they are not inclined to do that.

Just announced we extended him 3 years and promoted him to assistant head coach with campbell leaving.

He has been great at developing our d line. I'm glad we found a way to keep him
