New Orleans Saints general manager Mickey Loomis was able to eavesdrop on opposing coaches in the 2002 to 2004 seasons by using a wireless device in his Superdome suite, according to an ESPN report.

The US Attorney's Office in Eastern Louisiana was informed of Loomis's activity on Friday. Sources told ESPN that Loomis, who was suspended for eight games for his role in the Saints' Bounty scandal, was able to listen to game-day communication among opposing coaching staff members.

A Saints spokesman denied the accusations, ESPN reported, and an NFL spokesman said the league was not aware of the allegations.
