Saints have a deal with Klint Kubiak to become their new offensive coordinator

There we go. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports that the New Orleans Saints have a deal with Klint Kubiak to become their new offensive coordinator. All that’s left now is to put pens to paper and formalize the arrangement. Look for the Saints to make an official announcement on Kubiak’s hire in the days ahead.

Kubiak, who turns 37 this week, already brings a lot of NFL experience. He’s worked in the league since 2013 and has called plays for both the Minnesota Vikings (during the 2021 season as their offensive coordinator) and the Denver Broncos (late in the 2022 season after Nathaniel Hackett gave up the responsibility). He most recently worked with the San Francisco 49ers as their passing game specialist under head coach Kyle Shanahan.

And Kubiak is bringing new assistants with him — the Saints are going to experience heavy turnover on the offensive side of the ball with new coaches working with the quarterbacks, offensive line, wide receivers, and running backs. It’s going to be a new system for the first time in some fans’ lifetimes. And given the team’s poor performance in recent years, this change was needed.
