Aaron Kromer Will Serve As Saints Head Coach During Joe Vitt's Suspension

Until current New Orleans Saints head coach Joe Vitt returns from his six-game suspension, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Mickey Loomis, has appointed offensive line coach Aaron Kromer to lead the team in the interim.

Kromer has been with the Saints for five seasons.

In a team press release, Loomis gave his reasoning behind naming Kromer as acting head coach:

"This was a difficult decision because we have several coaches on our staff that would do a great job in this role," said Loomis. "Ultimately, I wanted to have the least amount of change with both the offensive and defensive staffs, and maintain the most continuity with the program that has been in place for the last six years."

"Aaron has been with us since 2008, he has coached with Sean both in college and here at the Saints. He is very familiar with our team and with the methods we have been successful with. He will do a great job," added Loomis.
