Saints Set to Appoint Recognizable Figure as New Offensive Coordinator

The New Orleans Saints have made a decision on their new offensive coordinator, opting for a candidate from a coaching lineage known for its numerous successes.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Saints intend to bring in Klint Kubiak, the passing game coordinator for the San Francisco 49ers, as their new offensive coordinator. The official announcement of Kubiak’s hiring is pending until after the conclusion of the Super Bowl. By selecting Kubiak, the Saints are aligning themselves with the coaching network of Kyle Shanahan, which has also produced the current head coach of the Miami Dolphins, Mike McDaniel. Kubiak spent the previous season in the role of passing game coordinator for the 49ers, taking over from Bobby Slowik, who garnered interest as a head coaching candidate after a season as the offensive coordinator for the Houston Texans.

As the son of former Denver Broncos coach Gary Kubiak, Klint has previously served as the offensive coordinator for the Minnesota Vikings, in addition to holding various offensive assistant positions across several NFL teams. A key responsibility for him in his new role will be maximizing the performance of veteran quarterback Derek Carr, who is expected to continue with the Saints for another season.
