NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- The New Orleans Saints have named Joe Vitt as interim coach, despite his facing a six-game regular-season suspension for his role in the club's bounty system. New Orleans General Manager Mickey Loomis says, in a release, that Vitt will take over on Monday. That's the day that head coach Sean Payton begins serving a year-long suspension that will run through the 2013 Super Bowl.
Vitt, who is the Saints assistant head coach and linebackers coach, has stepped in as an interim head coach before, including last season when Payton broke his leg. He also was interim coach with St. Louis in 2005.
