Quietly, the contract of Saints offensive coordinator Pete Carmichael, Jr. is expiring. Adam Schefter of ESPN reported several days ago that both Carmichael and offensive line coach Aaron Kromer will soon be free agents, absent new deals.
Now with former Saints offensive coordinator Doug Marrone, who worked for the Saints from 2006 through 2008, running the show in Buffalo, Marrone could be trying to make a run at Carmichael.
Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the Saints haven’t given up on Carmichael, yet. They believe that, ultimately, Carmichael will choose to remain in New Orleans. (The presence of Drew Brees on the roster could be a slight factor in the final decision-making process.)
Carmichael, who joined the Saints in 2006, also has interviewed for the head-coaching job in Chicago.
