am thankful today Commissioner Goodell has granted me reinstatement. As I stated
back in March, ‘I, along with Mickey Loomis, take full responsibility for all
aspects of our football program.'.........I feel we have learned from our
mistakes and are ready to move forward. I want to thank our owner, Mr. Benson
and all of our great fans for the overwhelming support throughout this past year.
I am excited to be back as Head Coach of the New Orleans Saints!”

lackluster season for the Saints after finishing with a 7-9 overall record, their

per game with 28.8 points, according to NFL.com.

former defensive coordinator for the Saints, remains suspended indefinitely.
