Buccaneers interview Saints coach Ronald Curry for OC opening

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced Wednesday that they have interviewed Ronald Curry for their offensive coordinator opening, meaning all three opposing NFC South teams have met with New Orleans Saints assistant coaches. Tampa Bay dismissed offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich early in the offseason and has been busy searching for his replacement.

Curry is the Saints’ passing game coordinator and quarterbacks coach, and he’s highly respected by his players and peers in league circles. He’s a coach on the rise who would be a big loss for New Orleans if he is offered the Bucs job. He was also selected as the National Team offensive coordinator at the Senior Bowl this week where he’s working closely with many 2023 draft prospects.

New Orleans already lost one talented assistant with defensive line coach Ryan Nielsen leaving to become the Atlanta Falcons defensive coordinator; secondary coach Kris Richard interviewed for the same position with the Carolina Panthers, though it doesn’t appear he is a candidate for the job at this time. At any rate, there’s a real possibility that each of the Saints’ rivals around the division end up siphoning talent from Dennis Allen’s coaching staff. It’s something to watch out for in the days ahead.
