Dennis Allen Expects To Return For The 2024 Saints Season

Posted by | January 8, 2024 .

Dennis Allen is expected to remain the New Orleans Saints head coach in 2024.

Following a 9-8 campaign in his second season, Allen dismissed needing any assurances he’d keep his job, citing discussions with general manager Mickey Loomis about moving forward into the offseason.

“I don’t think there’s any need to discuss that further,” he said on Monday.

When asked if he feels confident he’ll be the Saints coach moving forward, Allen replied: “That’s the indication I’ve been given.”

The Saints went 7-10 in his first season and 9-8 in his second season. This not only shows improvement but is considered a “winning season”. Not many coaches get fired when showing improvement and having a winning season. Offensive staff changes are expected to be heavily evaluated and could look very different in 2024 however.

Saints leadership (meaning some combination of general manager Mickey Loomis, team president Dennis Lauscha, and owner Gayle Benson) don’t view Allen as “part of the problem in New Orleans.” Nor his quarterback. “The feeling is that too much blame is being placed on Allen and quarterback Derek Carr for the team’s struggles in 2023, and that Allen and Carr could be key components of a resurgence in 2024.”

So despite the frustrations from Saints fans and even some players, It looks as if we will see the Allen/Carr combo in black and gold next season.
