Playing career

Allen was a highly-recruited defensive back at L. D. Bell High School in Hurst, Texas before choosing to follow in his father's footsteps and play for Texas A&M. Allen was a 4-year letterman for the Aggies as a safety from 1992-1995. He started the final 21 games of his career on the top-rated Texas A&M "Wrecking Crew" defense. His fourth-quarter interception clinched an 18-9 victory over rival Texas in 1993, sending the Aggies to their third-straight Cotton Bowl Classic. He won Southwest Conference Defensive Player of the Week honors after intercepting two passes in a 36-14 win over Oklahoma in 1994. Allen was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Buffalo Bills and competed in their training camp in 1996.
[edit] Coaching career

[edit] College

Allen began his coaching career at his alma mater, serving as a graduate assistant coach under his old coach R. C. Slocum for four seasons (1996–1999), working primarily with the secondary. He then went on to Tulsa where he was a secondary coach for two seasons (2000–2001).
[edit] National Football League

In 2002, Allen’s first year with the Falcons, when he assisted in coaching the defensive backfield, the club tied for third in the NFL with 24 interceptions and improved from 30th vs. the pass in 2001 to 16th the following year.
Over his last two years in Atlanta, the Falcons’ defensive line was the anchor of the defense. In 2004, Atlanta led the NFL for the first time in club history with 48 sacks and the unit sent DE Patrick Kerney to the Pro Bowl. In 2005 DT Rod Coleman represented the club in the postseason all-star game and the Falcons notched 37 sacks.
In 2006, Allen was in charge of the Saints' defensive line, who combined for over 290 tackles, 28.5 sacks, six forced fumbles and six fumble recoveries. The season was highlighted by the Pro Bowl selection DE Will Smith.

Good choice...we need either an elite cb def cord or someone who can inspire the def line to get off their azzes. Tired of going through def lineman and sub-par safeties and cbs.

He does both.

He learned from Gregg Williams who has some of the best blitz schemes in the league. He values DL play he values a good ballhawking secondary And he comes from a pressure based system that involves many types of blitzís and exotic things.

Dunno about Allen's preference, but my understanding was the Saints are a 4-3 defense that recently began using the 3-4 in some games (sometimes extensively) depending on the opponent and situation.

I think Elway might be cheating off of the Eagles' paper:

Soooo... you guys interviewing anyone? Why? Oh, no reason...

I like the sounds if him more than a guy like Mora. An up and comer who has studied under some of the best defensive minds in the game.

I agree dedhed...I would think Fox would want a guy who is ready to learn under him, yet bring some fresh ideas with him...I say get it done, so focus can go to the free agents and draft!

This is the most important part of the resume. I wouldn't mind this guy in Denver...

In 2006, Allen was in charge of the Saints' defensive line, who combined for over 290 tackles, 28.5 sacks, six forced fumbles and six fumble recoveries. The season was highlighted by the Pro Bowl selection DE Will Smith.

You know who their D-line coach is right now? Bill Johnson, former defensive line coach of your very own Denver Broncos before being replaced by Nunley. An upgrade, but not a big one. They are both excellent coaches.
