I think we need a couple of new fresh legs on the O-line.

Roushar is a 28-year coaching veteran in the college ranks, coming to New Orleans following a six-year stint at Michigan State, his last two as offensive coordinator/tight ends coach. His stint with the Spartans marked the fifth time he served as an offensive coordinator, also having done so at Illinois (2004), Northern Illinois (1998-2002), Ball State (1994) and Butler (1989-92).

In 2012, Michigan State’s running game enjoyed a particularly productive campaign as junior RB La’Veon Bell won the Big Ten rushing title with 1,793 yards, the second-highest single-season total in MSU history, as he was selected first-team All-Big Ten and a first-team All-American by CollegeFootballNews.com. The passing offense ranked fourth in the Big Ten. In Roushar’s first season as coordinator in 2011, the Spartans averaged 31.0 points per game, ranked third in the conference, while setting school records for most points (434) and passing yards (3,535) and finishing second in net yards per game (5,466). Prior to his promotion, Roushar served four seasons as offensive line coach.

A two-year letterman as a quarterback at Northern Illinois, Roushar began his coaching career as a student assistant at his alma mater in 1984 and also spent time as an assistant at Butler (1986-92), Rhode Island (1993), Ball State (1994) and Illinois (1995-96), where he served on the same staff as Payton his final year. He then spent six years as offensive line coach at Northern Illinois, before returning to Champaign for a two-year stint in 2003. Roushar arrived in East Lansing after serving as offensive line coach at Cincinnati for two seasons (2005-06).


ok so this was not a hire out of the blue.

Saints hire Michigan State’s offensive coordinator as RB coach | ProFootballTalk
Michigan State’s offensive coordinator has left East Lansing for New Orleans.

The Saints have announced that Dan Roushar, formerly offensive coordinator at Michigan State, has been hired as running backs coach in New Orleans.

“The New Orleans Saints and Michigan State are built on similar models, with a focus on character and people,” Roushar said in a statement, via our friends at CFT. “New Orleans has won a Super Bowl, and over the last five years, the Saints have been one of the winningest organizations in the NFL. I’ve had an opportunity to work for Mark Dantonio – in my opinion, the best college football coach in America – for the last eight years, including the last six seasons at Michigan State. Now, I have an opportunity to work for arguably the best coach in the NFL, in Sean Payton. Professionally, this is an opportunity I simply couldn’t pass up. Now as a running backs coach, I have the chance to learn the interworking of the NFL.”

In New Orleans, Roushar will work with perhaps the deepest group of running backs in the league, with Pierre Thomas, Darren Sproles, Mark Ingram and Chris Ivory.

The Saints have also announced that Bret Ingalls has been moved from running backs coach to offensive line coach.

He's used to being with a winner. I just hope he can get our running game back on track.
