Saints Expected to Hire 49ers’ Klint Kubiak As Offensive Coordinator, per Reports


The New Orleans Saints are set to complete a deal appointing Klint Kubiak, the San Francisco 49ers’ passing game specialist, as their new offensive coordinator, as reported by ESPN and NFL Network. Kubiak’s tenure with the NFC champions will conclude with Super Bowl LVIII on Sunday, marking the end of his time with the 49ers, and he will take over the position previously held by Pete Carmichael in the Saints organization.

During Kubiak’s inaugural season with the offensively potent 49ers, the team secured the fourth position in the NFL for net passing yards (4,384) and the second spot for touchdown passes (33). Kubiak’s coaching journey in the NFL began in 2013 with the Minnesota Vikings, followed by a stint as a Denver Broncos assistant in 2022 before joining the San Francisco 49ers.

Kubiak, whose father is the former Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak, led Denver to victory in Super Bowl 50. The decision to replace Pete Carmichael came after the Saints finished the season with a 9–8 record, missing the playoffs, as the team averaged 23.6 points (ranking ninth in the NFL) and 337.2 yards (ranking 14th in the NFL) per game. Kubiak’s last game with the 49ers will be on Sunday in Super Bowl LVIII, with kickoff scheduled for 6:30 p.m. ET on CBS.
