The NFL Coaches Association, which filed a friend-of-the-court brief in federal court this week in support of players in their labor battle with NFL owners, does not represent any of New Orleans' coaches, Saints LB coach Joe Vitt told The (New Orleans) Times-Picayune in a story published Friday. Vitt told The Times-Picayune the coaches were siding with owners, not players, in the labor dispute.  

"We're supporting the owners," Vitt said, according to The Times-Picayune. "I've said this a million times, our organization has been built on trust. (Owner Tom) Benson has been great to us. Unequivocally, we support our ownership."

On Thursday, the Redskins' 17 assistant coaches also came out in support of the owners.
