THIBODAUX, La. (AP) _ Last year Jim Haslett was a rookie coach taking over one of the worst teams in the NFL. After turning the New Orleans Saints around and earning Coach of the Year, Haslett heads into his second season with more confidence, experience and a team that's expected to win. Unchanged is the humility with which he approaches the job. ``You can always learn and always grow. That's the nice thing about this business _ there's something you can always do to make yourself better.'' Haslett amazed observers from the beginning last year. He took over a 3-13 team that had not had a winning season since 1992. Good players like offensive tackle William Roaf were in the minority on the team and were discouraged by the years of futility. Former coach Mike Ditka had stripped the Saints of draft picks in the Ricky Williams deal, not only trading away the 1999 picks, but two of the 2000 picks, including the first round choice. Haslett cleaned house, replacing 30 players by the time the Saints took the field for the first game of the season. What was supposed to be the first year of an extended rebuilding period turned into a 10-6 season with the Saints winning the NFC West and the first playoff game in the history of the franchise.
