NEW ORLEANS - Saints coach Sean Payton has added seven assistant coaches to his staff and shifted responsibilities for some assistants who remain from last season's team that went 7-9 and missed the playoffs.

Payton says he's hired former Oakland head coach Dennis Allen as senior defensive assistant, John Morton as wide receivers coach, Joel Thomas as running backs coach and James Willis as defensive assistant focused on linebackers. Also added are Kyle DeVan and Greg Lewis as offensive assistants and Brendan Nugent as a coaching assistant.

Dan Roushar, who coached running backs last season, is moving to tight ends coach. He replaces Terry Malone, who was fired after last season. Morton replaces Henry Ellard. Brian Young, a defensive assistant last season, now will work more closely with outside linebackers.
