Mike Martz scheduled for interview.

Did anyone see this on WWL news this morning? They said he is scheduled to interview within the upcoming week. I have not seen it anywhere else as of know.

I personally do not like the guy. I think he has made some bad coaching decisions over the past couple of years, and he does not properly utlize the players and their talents.

Interested in some opinions..................

I'd take Haslett back, before I took Martz. And everyone knows how I feel about Haslett.

If he took over the only thing that would improve is our offense, a couple of more wins a year at best. I so would have like Childress...

Saints contact Martz after contract is settled

The New Orleans Saints called Mike Martz on Thursday night about their head-coaching vacancy. According to league sources, Martz was contacted by Saints general manager Mickey Loomis. A tentative visit with the Saints and Martz is planned for the end of next week.

This development occurred on the day the Rams officially severed ties with Martz, finalizing a settlement for the final year of his coaching contract.

"We settled all our contract issues with Mike and wish him the best of luck in the future," Rams president John Shaw said Thursday evening.

Shaw would not disclose the amount of the settlement. But it's believed to be in the neighborhood of about half the $3.25 million Martz was scheduled to make next season.

Normally, coaches who are fired in the NFL receive their full remaining salary. But with the threat of a grievance procedure by the Rams for "cause" - specifically, news reports of alleged comments by Martz that Shaw and the Rams weren't all that interested in winning - Martz decided to settle out his contract for less money and get on with his life.

Martz's agent, Bob LaMonte, did not return a phone message Thursday. Martz spent Thursday on the golf course with his brothers in San Diego and could not be reached for comment.

The Saints fired head coach Jim Haslett after a tumultuous season in which the club played "home" games in Baton Rouge, La.; San Antonio, Texas; and New York because of the Hurricane Katrina destruction in New Orleans.
