Saints | Interested in P. Hill of Fresno State for head coach

Jimmy Smith and Mike Triplett, of the New Orleans Times-Picayune, report the New Orleans Saints have contacted Fresno State head coach Pat Hill about the Saints' vacant head coaching position. Hill's potential candidacy to fill the vacancy left by the firing of Jim Haslett brings the total acknowledged number to five. Hill told The Fresno Bee Saturday night, Jan. 8, that he has spoken with the Saints. "Yeah, I've talked to them," said Hill, who had eight recruits in Fresno Saturday. "I've been contacted by a lot of people, but I have nothing really going right now that's any big concern. It's just conversation." Previously, he worked in the NFL as an assistant for five years, initially under Bill Belichick with the Cleveland Browns, then later with the Baltimore Ravens, before joining Fresno State in 1996. His contract runs through the 2007 season with Fresno State.
