NEW ORLEANS — Well that was not the the name anyone expected. After the departure of Ronald Curry to the Buffalo Bills, the New Orleans Saints have vacancies at the quarterbacks coaching spot and at passing game coordinator. It seems, per reports, that they already have their target at one of those positions.

Per ESPN”s Jeremy Fowler, the Saints are expected to hire former Minnesota Vikings and Chicago Bears quarterbacks coach Andrew Janocko to hold the same role in New Orleans. Janocko has experience working with soon-to-be-named Offensive Coordinator Klint Kubiak. The two worked together in the same capacity with the Vikings in 2021.

During that season, quarterback Kirk Cousins completed 66.3% of his passes for 4,221 yards. He also had a touchdown to interception count of 33 and 7. Cousins and Saints quarterback Derek Carr are similar styles of passer, though Carr has more athleticism and looks to process the field faster.

The most impressive part of Kubiak and Janocko’s work with Cousins came down to the high volume of passes (561) compared to the low interception total (7) and touchdown total (33). While Cousins threw the fourth-most passes of his career that season, he threw the second-fewest interceptions of his career in a season wherein he started at least 15 games. He also threw for his lowest career interception percentage and second-highest full-season touchdown percentage.
