One season is enough, an un-named Saints player tells NOLA.com/Times-Picayune reporter Larry Holder and defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo should be fired.
In Spagnuolo's first year with the team, his defense set a new NFL single-season record for yards allowed.
Players showed public support for the new coach and his scheme during the season but the feeling was not the same behind closed doors and they were being "politically correct" when talking to the media, the player told Holder on condition of anonymity.
Spagnuolo's personality along with his play-calling did not go over well either with the player calling the coordinator a "control freak" that treated players like "crap".
Jonathan Vilma wasn't happy with the un-named source and let his displeasure be known on Twitter, calling it "bs" and "say who said it". Vilma also told NOLA.com when reached for comment that he was "bothered" by the report and that the player "should be man enough to put his name on it."
Spagnuolo replaced Gregg Williams as the Saints' defensive coordinator before the 2012 season, after serving as head coach of the St. Louis Rams from 2009-2011. His NFL coaching career also includes stints with the Philadelphia Eagles and the New York Giants.
