Ingalls served on the staff at Northwestern from 2006-08, where he was running game coordinator/offensive line coach his final season. He molded a line without extensive starting experience into the cornerstone of an offense that led the Wildcats to a nine-win season. Northwestern rushed for over 1,800 yards and ranked second in the Big Ten for fewest sacks allowed. In 2007, the offensive line blocked for the Big Tenís top-ranked passing attack, and in 2006 led the way for 1,705 yards rushing.

Ingalls spent 2005 at Miami (Ohio), working with the tight ends and tackles, and spent the previous season with Indiana State. From 2000-03, he was the offensive coordinator at his alma mater, the University of Idaho, where he also tutored the quarterbacks and running backs for two seasons each.

From 1997-99, Ingalls served as offensive coordinator/offensive line coach at Northern Iowa and he held similar positions at Louisville from 1995-96. In 1994, he coached the offensive line at Eastern Michigan.

Ingalls held several positions on the offensive side of the ball at San Diego State from 1989-93. Over those years, he had stints as offensive coordinator (1992-93), offensive line coach (1990-92) and running backs coach (1989, 1993). While running backs coach, he tutored future Pro Football Hall of Fame selection Marshall Faulk, who twice led the nation in rushing.

Ingalls' coaching career began at Idaho, where he graduated in 1984. After serving as a student defensive backs coach, he was assistant offensive line coach from 1984-85 and running backs coach from 1986-88. Idaho won four Big Sky Conference championships during his tenure.

I does seem like he does have experience in being the O-line coach and developing/teaching offensive linemen, so here's to hoping he can fill the shoes left behind by Kromer.

It's all possible at this point. Anyway, the Saints' website states on his profile that Ingalls has "extensive experience tutoring offensive linemen", whatever that means.

New Orleans Saints: Bret Ingalls
Fingers crossed...

Re: New Orleans Saints Starting Left Tackle Vacancy Becoming an Issue

There's a guy named Sean Payton that should make the transition smoother...

Remember, Condon and Brees asked for so much as to not allow for his protection...

Bought a Lamborghini and nothing left for a garage...

I would rather have a Lamborghini and no garage, than a Pinto parked in the Taj Mahal .

Re: New Orleans Saints Starting Left Tackle Vacancy Becoming an Issue

Ingalls has that Illinois thing that Payton likes...plus Northwestern is a really under-rated sleeper program. They had that bad reputation for a long time, of being the really losing team, the biggest losing streak in history and all that -- that's all in the past now but they still get overlooked in people's minds. Looks like this guy was a big part of their improvement.
