Curtis Johnson leaving the Saints for Tulane

As the Saints continue their push toward another possible Super Bowl appearance and/or win, they will need a new receivers coach.

Per a league source, receivers coach Curtis Johnson has accepted the head-coaching job at Tulane.  He joined the Saints in 2006, with coach Sean Payton.  Johnson, 50, previously spent 10 years at the University of Miami, with various other college jobs before that.

Johnson will coach with the Saints tonight.  His status beyond the Lions game has not yet been determined.
