The New Orleans Saints have fired defensive coordinator Rob Ryan.
The Saints defense is allowing a league-worst 31.5 points per game this season and a league-high 6.7 yards per play. New Orleans allowed 47 points against the Redskins on Sunday, including a career-high four touchdown passes from quarterback Kirk Cousins.
New Orleans allowed the fourth-most points in the NFL last season after surrendering the fourth-fewest in Ryan’s first year as defensive coordinator.
The Saints have a bye this week before they play the Texans on Nov. 29.
