Jon Gruden hasn’t had a coaching job since being fired by the Raiders in 2021 over offensive emails. But this week, he’s working for the Saints.
Gruden has been with the Saints this week helping them build the offense around quarterback Derek Carr, Jeff Duncan of Timetable-Picayune reports.
Carr was Gruden’s quarterback with the Raiders, and Gruden was working at the Saints facility with Carr and the offensive coaching staff this week as they began setting up the offense.
Saints offensive coordinator Pete Carmichael has been at New Orleans since 2009, but he’s likely to make some pretty big offensive changes this season in an effort to capitalize on Carr’s strengths. Gruden can contribute to this effort.
