NEW ORLEANS — Another day, another New Orleans Saints assistant coach reportedly hired by another NFL football team.

On Monday multiple sources, including NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport, are reporting that Saints’ Quarterbacks Coach Joe Lombardi has agreed to become the new Los Angeles Chargers’ Offensive Coordinator.

The news first reported by Rapoport on Twitter:

Lombardi was hired as an offensive assistant for the Saints in 2007 and was promoted to Quarterbacks Coach in 2009, a position he held until 2013.

Lombardi left to be the Offensive Coordinator in Detroit from 2014-15, before returning to the SAints in 2016 to resume his role as Quarterbacks Coach.

Lombardi is the grandson of Hall of Fame NFL football coach, Vince Lombardi.
