Saints News, 1/13/16: Saints Interested in Adding Dan Campbell to Coaching Staff

From According to Nick Underhill of the New Orleans Advocate, the Saints have spoken with Campbell about joining the staff, though the position he would fill remains unclear. Campbell has a lengthy history with Payton. Campbell played tight end for the New York Giants from 1999-2002 when Payton was the quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator. Campbell followed Payton to the Dallas Cowboys for 2003-05 where Payton had become the assistant head coach under Bill Parcells. Campbell once again joined Payton in New Orleans for his final season in 2009, but was placed on injured reserve before the season began. The logical spot for Campbell would be coaching tight ends, which is the position he coached with the Dolphins before getting the interim head coach job midway through last season. However, the Saints already have a tight ends coach in Dan Roushar.
