The hunt for Mike McCarthy's replacement continues.

Saints general manager Mickey Loomis said the team has received permission from Denver to speak with Broncos running backs coach Bobby Turner about New Orleans' vacant offensive coordinator's position.
Turner, 55, has spent the past 10 seasons on Denver coach Mike Shanahan's staff, winning Super Bowl XXXII and XXXIII rings following the 1997 and '98 seasons.

"We're interviewing (Turner) tomorrow," Loomis confirmed Monday night.

Before joining the Broncos in 1995, Turner spent 20 years in the college ranks, serving as offensive coordinator at Purdue (1991-94) and Ohio State (1989-90). He also had assistant coaching stints at Fresno State (1983-88) and Indiana State (1975-82).

In Turner's 10 seasons with Denver, the Broncos had a 1,000-yard rusher nine times. Terrell Davis surpassed 1,000 yards from 1995-98, Olandis Gary in 1999, Mike Anderson in 2000, Clinton Portis in 2002 and 2003 and Reuben Droughns this past season.
Haslett said Saints quarterbacks coach Mike Sheppard also is being considered for the coordinator's job.

Yeah, its just a sarcastic bump.
I can\'t believe no one has commented on this.
We fire our RB COACH
We hire a highly respected RB COACH
Now we\'re interviewing a highly-respected RB COACH to be our OC.

I\'m no John Clayton or Chris Mortenson, but this seems to be saying something.

Things that make you go Hmmmm.

It says the o-line needs a lot of work cuz there\'s no way a stud RB like Deuce shouldn\'t be putting up LT like numbers. ;)

In all seriousness I think it means we\'re gonna start running the dang ball, then we\'re gonna run it some more.

It could also mean that we may not have a gun-slinging QB next year so we\'d better get the run game in gear.

Or haslet doesn\'t see a problem with pass production and just wants better tutors for rushing.

I wish he\'d go ahead and hire somebody already.
