Saints GM Mickey Loomis addresses Galette, coaching changes

METAIRIE, LA (WVUE) -

According to general manager Mickey Loomis, Junior Galette has met with the team's security director, but the Saints are still gathering information on his Monday arrest.

"We're going to take this matter very seriously, and we're going to let law enforcement and the legal process run its course," Loomis said. "We have notified the league. I presume this is going to fall under the personal conduct policy. The league's got a process for that. We're going to let both those run its course. If at some point, we deem it necessary for the club to take some action, you know we'll do that."

Galette was arrested and booked with simple battery Monday after an altercation with a woman at his home in Kenner. He was released on bond, and has a tentative court appearance set for late next month.

The Saints and Galette reached a four-year, 41.5 million dollar extension to his contract before last season began. He led the team for the second straight year with 10 sacks, but also became a bit of a distraction during the season with critical comments of former teammates.

Under the NFL's newer personal conduct policy, Galette could face a six-game suspension to start the 2015 season. 

Loomis also spoke to his feelings on the past season, which began with Super Bowl aspirations.

"I feel the same way that everyone in our building feels, we're disappointed," Loomis said. "7-9 wasn't our expectation, it's not what we're accustomed to."

As for changes coming to the coaching staff and the the status of defensive coordinator Rob Ryan, Loomis said no decisions have been made.

"We're in the very beginning of the evaluation process and look, when we get our decisions completely made, we'll make announcements at the appropriate time," Loomis said.
