New Orleans Saints General Manager Mickey Loomis (pictured left) has completely denied the eavesdropping allegations that were reported on ESPN’s OTL today.

According to a tweet from Fox Sports reporter Jay Glazer, Loomis e-mailed him the following:

“This report on ESPN is absolutely false. I have a monitor in front of me in my booth that provides the league issued stats for the game. I have a small tv with the network broadcast and I have an earpiece to listen to the WWL-AM radio (flagship broadcaster) game broadcast.

To think I am sitting in there listening and actually and or doing something with the offensive and defensive play calls of the opposing teams makes this story and the unnamed sources that provided the false information that much more less credible…it just didn’t happen.”

The allegations claim Loomis eavedropped on opposing offensive and defensive coaching staffs on gamedays with electronic devices. The allegations claim he did so between 2002 and 2004, when the Saints were coached by Jim Haslett. Haslett released a statement today on the report.

“At no time during my tenure as head coach with the New Orleans Saints did Mickey (Loomis) and I discuss monitoring opposing team coaches communication, nor did I have any knowledge of this. To my knowledge this concept was never discussed or utilized.”
