Saints News, 11/26/15: Kenny Vaccaro 'Sick' over Rob Ryan Firing

From Mike Triplett: “It was tough for me, especially since I feel like we came in together, we were part of a good thing that first year (2013),” Vaccaro said. “I love him, man. I loved him as a coach, I love him as a friend...I feel like it was our fault. When you’re ranked 32, I think everybody has their hand in that pot. But at the same time, I feel like we let him down as players. A good man got fired, and it was sad to see.”
