The New Orleans Saints coaching staff may be pilfered a bit more after the season is over.  The team lost wide receiver coach Curtis Johnson last year who went to become the head football coach at Tulane University and may lose another to a different university.

Rumors swirled yesterday that offensive coordinator Pete Carmichael was being looked at by Boston College as a candidate for their head coaching job.  Carmichael was asked in a press conference about this and he said he had “heard nothing from Boston College.”

Now’s Mike Florio is reporting that offensive line coach Aaron Kromer could be a second person on the Saints staff that is being looked at by them.  Florio wrote:

"Per a league source, B.C. athletic director Brad Bates will interview Saints offensive line coach/running game coordinator Aaron Kromer for the vacant position in the days after the Saints’ Thursday night game against the Falcons."

Of course Florio mentions this about Kromer in his article that has also been said about Carmichael which is both are also people who could be looked at to fill head coaching vacancies in the NFL that are surely to come up at the end of this season.

Kromer although had a disastrous start to his head coaching stint when the Saints lost their first four games of the season while he was the interim head coach for Joe Vitt who was serving a six game suspension, who likewise was subbing for suspended full-time head coach Sean Payton.

Of course Kromer was also trying to pull double duty during this period since he was also trying to be head coach as well as keep the offensive line on track.
