With major offseason changes for the New Orleans Saints on the way, a new offensive coordinator is needed to try and help quarterback Derek Carr. The Saints just posted a rough year as a whole, with the offense looking pretty underwhelming.

Enter Jon Gruden? The former NFL head coach, most recently with the Raiders, is reportedly a candidate to take over as OC in New Orleans. Other candidates are being interviewed, but there's some buzz surrounding Gruden getting the job.

Gruden holds plenty of NFL experience, but he's also in the middle of a lawsuit against the league and commissioner Roger Goodell. That will need to be resolved before any decisions are made here, but Gruden is surely a name to watch for the Saints OC opening.
