New Broncos head coach John Fox hired Saints secondary coach Dennis Allen as the team's new defensive coordinator on Monday.

Allen has been an NFL assistant coach for nine years, including the past five in New Orleans. His first two seasons with the Saints were spent as assistant defensive line coach, and the past three as secondary coach. Before that, Allen coached in Atlanta for four years (2002-05).

The Saints ranked fourth in the league in pass defense this past season.
