Saints hired Mike Nolan as linebackers coach.
The scoop came via Sirius XM NFL Radio, which employed Nolan in 2016. Nolan will be a position coach under DC Dennis Allen after spending one year out of coaching. He coached the Chargers' linebackers in 2015 following stints as a defensive coordinator in Denver (2009), Miami (2010-2011), and Atlanta (2012-2014). Nolan was the 49ers' head coach from 2005-2008.

Alex Marvez of The Sporting News reports Mike Nolan is interviewing for a job with the Saints.

Remember him? The former 49ers coach was out of the league last year following a one-year stint as the Chargers' LBs coach. The Saints may view him as a replacement for Joe Vitt, who was fired as LBs coach shortly after the season. Nolan was also up for the role of Jaguars' LBs coach but recently withdrew his name from consideration.

Chargers hired ex-Falcons DC Mike Nolan as LBs coach.

Nolan has been either coordinating defenses or serving as a head coach every year since 2002. His past two Falcons units were abysmal, but his personnel was a major issue. He's a nice addition to DC John Pagano's staff.

A source tells ESPN that the Cardinals want to interview Falcons DC Mike Nolan for their defensive coordinator vacancy.

The Falcons are fully expected to hire Seahawks DC Dan Quinn as their new head coach following the Feb. 1 Super Bowl. That could put Nolan on the market and the Cardinals are looking for someone to fill the big shoes of Todd Bowles. Dick LeBeau is expected to serve on the staff in some kind of "senior position."

When asked about the Falcons, former NFL coach Brian Billick said he "can't think of another team in the league that has less quantifiable talent on it defensively."

Billick is the brother-in-law of Falcons head coach Mike Smith and also worked with defensive coordinator Mike Nolan in Baltimore. He points out what's become obvious: This Falcons defense is what we all expected the Cowboys defense to be this season. They rank 31st in yards allowed per game, 29th in points allowed per game and have just three sacks through four outings. The Giants, Bears, Ravens and Lions are up next.
