Saints News, 2/5/14: Saints Hire Mike Neu As QB Coach

New, comments

Neu comes over from Tulane where he was once the QB coach to current Saints back-up QB Ryan Griffin. Is this hire an indication that Sean Payton definitely views young Ryan Griffin as his QB of the future for the sad day when Drew Brees decides to retire? Could Griffin move into the no. 2 QB role this year?
