Metairie, LA (Sports Network) - The New Orleans Saints on Wednesday tabbed
Aaron Kromer to fill the role of linebackers/assistant head coach, previously
held by Joe Vitt.
Vitt was picked in April to assume the day-to-day coaching duties for the club
while head coach Sean Payton serves his year-long suspension.
"He is very familiar with our team and with the methods we have been
successful with," said Saints general manager Mickey Loomis. "Ultimately, I
wanted to have the least amount of change with both the offensive and
defensive staffs, and maintain the most continuity with the program that has
been in place for the last six years."
Kromer, who is entering his fifth season with New Orleans, had served as
offensive line coach since 2009.
