Saints To Interview Greg Lewis For OC Position

A new candidate has emerged in the Saints’ ongoing search for a new offensive coordinator. New Orleans is set to speak with Ravens receivers coach Greg Lewis today, reports Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.

Lewis’ meeting comes at a time when a decision could be forthcoming relatively soon for the Saints. As Nick Underhill of notes, the team’s OC search has “narrowed considerably.” New Orleans moved on from Pete Carmichael at the end of the campaign, bringing a close to his lengthy tenure at the position. Lewis will join the list of candidates under consideration to replace him.

The latter had an eight-year playing career with the Eagles and Vikings which came to an end in 2010. He quickly turned to coaching, beginning with stints at San Diego, San Jose State and Pittsburgh as a WRs coach. Lewis’ first NFL opportunity came with the Saints in 2015 as an offensive assistant, and it set him up for future positions in the pro game.

The 43-year-old worked as the Eagles’ WRs coach in 2016, then took the same position with the Chiefs for a four-year stretch. Lewis remained in Kansas City from 2021-22 as the team’s running backs coach, allowing him to become a two-time Super Bowl winner as a member of Andy Reid‘s staff. He joined the Ravens this past offseason as part of Baltimore’s overarching goal of improving in the passing game.

That effort resulted in 214 passing yards per game, which ranked just 21st in the league. Still, Lewis was part of an staff overseeing the league’s fourth-highest scoring offense this year, and he has now landed on the OC radar. The New Orleans vacancy is the first to which he has been connected during the 2024 hiring cycle.

Here is how the Saints’ OC search is shaping up:
