New Orleans Saints Fire Longtime Offensive Coordinator Carmichael
After another disappointing season, the Saints have fired offensive coordinator Pete Carmichael. Carmichael has been with the Saints organization for 18 years, and was the offensive coordinator for the last 15 seasons. The Saints haven't made the playoffs for three years, and there are some who felt a change was inevitable, according to the host of the Locked On Saints podcast Ross Jackson:
“It was clear for the New Orleans Saints that after the 2022-23 seasons, sort of these consistently-inconsistent offenses, that they would need to move on and try to figure out a new way to revamp their offensive system,” said Jackson.
There are many among the Who Dat Faithful that believe head coach Dennis Allen should be fired, but Jackson says the Saints look at the inconsistency of the offense as a reason why Carmichael needed to be replaced.
“Execution, game planning, play calling, all those things were things that we pointed to for the past two seasons and said wow the New Orleans Saints really need to improve here,” said Carmichael.
Jackson says quarterbacks coach Ronald Curry could get promoted, but there are also quality candidates outside of the organization, including the Los Angeles Rams passing game coordinator and quarterbacks coach Zac Robinson and 49ers passing game coordinator Klint Kubiak.
