Report: Saints Expected To Interview Derius Swinton For Special Teams Coordinator Job
The New Orleans Saints have several spots to fill on their coaching staff, including special teams coordinator.
According to a report from Nick Underhill of The Advocate, San Francisco 49ers special teams coordinator Derius Swinton is a target of interest for New Orleans, who are expected to interview him this week, per Underhill's sources.
Swinton interviewed with the Denver Broncos last week.
A college football player at Hampton University from 2003-2006, Swinton broke into the NFL with the St. Louis Rams in 2008 as a special teams quality control coach after two seasons as a graduate assistant on the University of Tennessee football staff.
New Orleans fired long-time ST coordinator Greg McMahon 11 days ago.
In addition to ST coordinator, New Orleans also needs to fill a defensive line coach position as well as two linebacker coach positions.
