Saints passing game coordinator Ronald Curry attending NFL coach accelerator program
This is a cool opportunity for Ronald Curry. The New Orleans Saints quarterbacks coach and passing-game coordinator is one of 40 participants at this year’s NFL Coach Accelerator program, having been nominated as someone with the potential to become a head coach someday. It’s based off of the front office accelerator event that Saints assistant general manager Khai Harley attended in 2022.
Here’s what the NFL said of the program in a public press release:
The Coach Accelerator aims to increase exposure between owners, executives, and diverse coaching talent, providing ample opportunity to develop and build upon their relationships. In a change to the nomination process this year, clubs were able to nominate those from outside of their organization.
The 40 participants this year are attending based on their high potential to be considered for a Head Coach position in the future. Sixteen of the participants will be returning from the May 2022 Accelerator cohort.
In addition to networking, further development of the participants is a critical component of the accelerator, with curated content sessions scheduled that will further engage each participant on the advancement of their executive leadership skills and business acumen.
Curry isn’t the only coach with Saints ties to participate in the event — former Saints defensive backs coach and co-defensive coordinator Kris Richard is also one of the 40 invitees, though he hasn’t taken a new job after splitting with New Orleans earlier this year.
So this is a good stage for Curry to continue to raise his standing around the league. He’s steadily climbed the ladder in New Orleans after coaching receivers and quarterbacks to continue adding to his responsibilities. If he continues to do well, he shouldn’t be long for New Orleans.
