The six-game suspension of New Orleans Saints interim coach Joe Vitt came to an end with the conclusion of Sunday’s game with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Vitt traveled to Tampa on a commercial flight Sunday morning before the game, and accompanied the team on its charter flight back to New Orleans after a 35-28 victory over the Bucs in Raymond James Stadium.



Multiple media outlets reported that Vitt, who was suspended for his role in the alleged bounty scandal, would return with the team when his ban officially ended at the final whistle.

He regains the reins from offensive line coach and run game coordinator Aaron Kromer, who was the interim to the interim for the first six games.

Saints fullback Jed Collins tweeted: “Got a special guest on the plane ride home Welcome Back Coach Vitt!!!

Got a good feeling that the offensive line and running game is about to show some life for the first time this season in Denver

Welcome back Joe, just in time to help prepare for Peyton Manning. I hope you got plenty of rest.

Re: Vitt to take over head coaching duties

I don't know if having Vitt back will really help, but I'm sure he'll bring some swagger and and a fiery attitude and those are things this year's team has been missing. We have been lacking the killer instinct in second halves and nearly gave away another yesterday that shouldn't have been close.

Welcome Back, Joe!

Vitt and Vilma back for an epic struggle against the Manning they defeated not so long ago...we'll certainly need both of them.

Them being back cannot hurt.
It takes time to get rythym going with your team. Training camp and preseason was that time. The Saints lost lots of time this year without having key personnel.

Hadn't noticed much killer instinct in 1st halves either.

Seriously tho, anyone else notice we've only given up 7 points in the 2nd half for three straight games?
