“The discussions have taken place,” Vitt said Tuesday, in comments to the media. “They are in the infantile stages right now. We are out of the OTAs. [G.M.] Mickey [Loomis] has a couple of coaches that he will talk to. He has a couple people in mind. But again, I think this is critical. We are going to see the personality of this team and what it takes on. Every year is different and the coach that can best serve the needs of this team is the guy that Mickey and Mr. Benson will pick. This is not something that is going to be made in the next week or two. We are going to see who can best serve the needs of our team. We’ve got great coaches here now. We’ve got coaches that have been here since 2006 and know our team and roster. We are blessed to have them.”

Joe Vitt interview.

Joe Vitt: "There's No Place I Would Rather Be"


When will an announcement be made about how you are replaced while you are not with the team?

“The discussions have taken place. They are in the infantile stages right now. We are out of the OTAs. Mickey has a couple of coaches that he will talk to. He has a couple people in mind. But again, I think this is critical. We are going to see the personality of this team and what it takes on. Every year is different and the coach that can best serve the needs of this team is the guy that Mickey and Mr. Benson will pick. This is not something that is going to be made in the next week or two. We are going to see who can best serve the needs of our team. We’ve got great coaches here now. We’ve got coaches that have been here since 2006 and know our team and roster. We are blessed to have them.”

How big of shoes is that to fill not only preparing for the season, but making critical gametime decisions?

“Just like when Sean (Payton) is here. We try to script as many of those critical decisions out before we ever play the game that we can. When we challenge, we have eyes up in the press box that tell Sean when to throw the flag and Sean has done a great job at throwing the flag. There are a lot of things that are going to be staying in place. We are going to do the best job that we can at getting this thing scripted and prepared for the guy that comes in. We’ll do a good job.”

From the time that the suspensions came out to now, are you surprised at the role and responsibilities that the coaches have taken?

“Well, that was Sean’s departing remarks to us, do your job. We have a veteran staff here. We’ve got a lot of veteran players here. This team has been through a lot together since we’ve been together in ’06. I made the statement and we made the statement at the conclusion of OTAs, (that) Sean would be proud of the body of work we have done until this point. Now we are on the clock. We have our ops meeting tonight, our conditioning test tomorrow. We are on the clock and in 11 days we are playing in a nationally televised game. It is for real now.”

Full interview.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.

Does it really matter?
Spags will run the defense,Carmichael the offense calls,Brees the players on field.
Just Spags make the calls/Challenges on the sideline when the defense is on the field,Carmichael when the offensive is on.
Whoever is "interim interim head coach" will just need to do a few interviews.
There is plenty of experience around to get through the games when Vitt is away.


I allready can't wait for the 2013 season draft.I'm sure with the year of Payton will be raring to go.Im expecting some new really inventive plays and a good draft.
Won't be the same winning a championship without him or Vilma.

"Two receivers to the left, Garcon to the right. Manning in the shotgun, puts Collie in motion. Looks in his direction...it's picked off! It's picked off! It's Tracy Porter again! He's runnin' free! He's gonna go all the way!

Like it was already said, it doesn't really matter who the 2x interim HC is going to be while Vitt serves his suspension, I only hope that they don't plan on bringing in someone from the outside.

Spags would get the nod from me simply because he has been a HC before and, therefore, is better accustomed to the tempo of the game and how a HC can affect that with the choices he makes on the sideline.

X2 on keeping it in house. I don't know about Spags though. He pretty much sucked as a head coach. I'd rather he be left alone to focus on the defense and not worry about what's going on with the other guys. Let's see what Carmichael has to offer.

Maybe Ditka could also bring back Ricky as his first official move as the interim interim head coach of the Saints.

Do we have any draft picks that we can trade for him?

Anyone else get the impression that they may be considering going outside of the organization to get an interim coach?
