The New Orleans Saints' lackluster 2022 season has put the spotlight directly on head coach Dennis Allen. His struggles in his first year at the helm, coupled with a poor history as an HC, have prompted speculation about his job security.

Saints GM Mickey Loomis finally cleared up the situation on Friday.

Loomis told reporters Allen is staying put as head coach. This matches earlier reports that said New Orleans was committed to its HC and not in a rush to make any sudden changes.

For the significant portion of the fan base that's been calling for Allen to be let go, this is certainly disappointing news. Part of the optimism surrounding promoting Allen from defensive coordinator to head coach was based on continuity. However, he struggled more than some of the other first-year HCs around the league and looked lost with game planning despite major familiarity with the team's key contributors.

Saints fans will have to hope another year and full offseason sets Allen up for success. Otherwise, the 2023 campaign may be another trying time.
