Saints next head coach odds: Who is interviewing

The Saints are interviewing candidates for their next head coach. We break down who they have interviewed and will interview, and how the odds look.

Long time head coach for the New Orleans Saints Sean Payton has stepped down, leaving a big question mark at the heart of a team that has talent, but is also in need of a consistent starting quarterback. Whoever is brought in to fill Payton’s shoes will need to address that question first.

There of course will be plenty of rumors as to who will end up coaching the Saints in 2022, but there is no doubt they have a good in-house candidate in Dennis Allen, who is their defensive coordinator. But the Saints will do their due diligence, so we should see some of the popular names get interviews. Eric Bienemy, Brian Flores, Vance Joseph, Kellen Moore, Brian Daboli are all likely to garner interest, but current and ex-Saints coaches like Allen, Aaron Glenn and Joe Lombardi could have the inside scoop.

Reported interviews, interview requests

The Saints have requested an interview with the Buccaneers’ offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich, per Adam Schefter.

The Saints have requested permission to interview Lions defensive coordinator Aaron Glenn for their head coaching job, per Albert Breer.
