We're hearing preliminary rumblings connecting Bengals offensive coordinator Bob Bratkowski to the head coaching job with the Saints. Saints G.M. Mickey Loomis will look closely at Bratkowski, we're told. Loomis was the cap guy in Seattle when Bratkowski worked there as the receivers coach. And familiarity could be all that Loomis has to go on. He's not a football guy, but a glorified bean counter. He doesn't know what to look for in a head coach, and there's no manual that he can buy or video he can rent to help him decide between Bratkowski or any other candidate. Of course, the bigger question is whether Bratkowski or anyone else will be interested in the job. The potential arrival of Matt Leinart as the new quarterback could be a drawing card for a coach with an offensive background. However, lingering uncertainty regarding the long-term location and viability of the franchise likely will diminish the attraction. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
