This was something that caught steam after Sunday’s public report from FOX Sports’ Jay Glazer that the team was looking for help. WDSU’s Fletcher Mackel caught wind of the team look at O’Dea to help.
O’Dea has been coaching in the NFL since 1994, serving in various roles for a number of teams. Most recently, O’Dea was with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Clearly, fans were in favor of canning Greg McMahon altogether, but at this point in the season it might have been a bit farfetched.
The Saints have six games left in their season, which has been extremely disappointing to say the least. O’Dea will join McMahon and special teams assistant Stan Kwan to try to fix the team’s various problems.
