Report: Texas A&M alumnus Jerrod Johnson has second interview for New Orleans Saints OC job

A former Texas A&M starting quarterback is one step closer to becoming the next offensive coordinator of the New Orleans Saints.

According to Pro Football Talk writer Josh Alper, Houston Texans quarterbacks coach Jerrod Johnson has had a second interview with the Saints for their vacancy. He had his first interview earlier this week, which was the first of three, also interviewing for the Pittsburgh Steelers and Philadelphia Eagles respective OC jobs.

Before suiting up for six NFL teams during his playing career, Johnson made history in College Station. When he graduated, the Houston native held two Texas A&M program records with the most yards passing (8,011) and total offensive yards (8,888) all-time. Kellen Mond now holds both records and Johnson is third in total yards behind Mond and Johnny Manziel.

Johnson got his start in coaching with the San Francisco 49ers in 2017 under the Bill Walsh Diversity Coaching Fellowship. He served in the same position with the Indianapolis Colts in 2019 before being elevated to an offensive quality control coach for the next two seasons. Johnson served as assistant quarterbacks coach on the Minnesota Vikings in 2022 before being hired by Texans head coach DeMeco Ryans prior to this season.

Given the success of Ohio State alumnus, rookie CJ Stroud, under the guidance of Johnson, the interviews will continue to roll in for the former Aggie.
