Saints Schedule Second Interview for Offensive Coordinator Position with Luke Getsy

Published on


Conducting their first OC search in 16 years, the Saints are not cutting corners. They have multiple candidates in place to conduct second interviews. Luke Getsy will be one of those.

The Saints are set to bring the former Bears OC in for another meeting, according to SI.com’s Albert Breer. The second Getsy-Saints meeting will take place Wednesday in New Orleans. Pete Carmichael has already landed on his feet, becoming the latest ex-Saints staffer to sign on with the Broncos under Sean Payton.

The Bears fired Getsy, 39, last month. He will join Texans quarterbacks coach Jerrod Johnson as candidates to receive a second interview for this job. The Saints, however, have also met with a few more still-available staffers. New Orleans has seen some of its candidates land elsewhere. Dan Pitcher, Zac Robinson and Shane Waldron — Getsy’s eventual Chicago replacement — have taken OC jobs with other teams.

Getsy remains in consideration for the Patriots’ OC job, with Breer confirming his previously reported Pats interview is transpiring today. The Pats also had Robinson, Pitcher and Waldron on their interview docket. The Bengals promoted Pitcher, and Robinson quickly became a candidate to follow Raheem Morris to Atlanta. That hire came to pass, taking another option off the table for OC-needy clubs.

The Bears employed Getsy as a play-calling OC for two seasons. The former Packers assistant made a smart pivot to an offense that capitalized on Justin Fields‘ run-game strengths midway through the 2022 season, and the Bears led the NFL in rushing that year. Chicago finished second on the ground this past season. Fields showed signs of development as a passer in 2023, but his standing in that area is driving the Bears’ seminal Fields-or-Caleb Williams call. Fields finished 23rd in QBR this season.

The longtime NFC North staffer is also in contention for the Raiders’ OC post. Here is how the Saints’ pursuit stands as of Tuesday afternoon:

  • Ronald Curry, quarterbacks coach (Saints): Interviewed
  • Luke Getsy, former offensive coordinator (Bears): To conduct second interview 1/31
  • Brian Griese, quarterbacks coach (49ers): Interviewed
  • Brian Johnson, former offensive coordinator (Eagles): Interviewed 1/29
  • Jerrod Johnson, quarterbacks coach (Texans): Conducted second interview 1/27
  • Klint Kubiak, pass-game coordinator (49ers): Interviewed
  • Greg Lewis, receivers coach (Ravens): To interview
  • Dan Pitcher, quarterbacks coach (Bengals): Second interview on 1/24; hired as Bengals OC
  • Zac Robinson, quarterbacks coach (Rams): Interviewed; hired as Falcons OC
  • Mike Sullivan, quarterbacks coach (Steelers): To interview
  • Shane Waldron, offensive coordinator (Seahawks): Interviewed; hired as Bears OC
