Report: Saints disputing whether Ryan Nielsen’s contract allows him to leave
Saints' defense line coach Ryan Nielsen is looking to join Ed Orgeron's staff at LSU and a deal seems (or seemed?) To be imminent.
LSU trainer Ed Orgeron even went to WWL radio on Monday afternoon and said about Julie Boudwin from Rivals about Nielsen: “We'll be there. Ryan is a prime candidate for us. Dear Ryan. . . . We're figuring out who we're going to hire and I think we're very close. "
Jane Slater of NFL Media, who reported the original news that Nielsen was leaving the Saints to become the LSU's defense coordinator, now reports that the Saints will not just let Nielsen go.
"Apparently there is a dispute over whether the language of Nielsen's contract will support the move into the college ranks," writes Slater. "The Saints are NOT currently signing this."
So Nielsen and LSU need to sort out contract issues with the Saints before he can leave the NFL team.
Nielsen has just finished his fourth season on the Saints staff. It was his first job in the NFL after 15 years at the college level.
Either way, the Saints will make sales with assistant head / tight-end coach Dan Campbell, who is slated to become the Lions' head coach. He could take defensive coach Aaron Glenn with him as his new defensive coordinator and / or other Saints' assistant coaches could also be traveling to Detroit.
