Andre Curtis

Andre Curtis enters his third season as assistant secondary coach for the Saints.

Curtis is an outstanding teacher who is well-versed in defending passing schemes through eight years of NFL coaching experience. He worked closely with secondary coach Wesley McGriff in 2013 to integrate two new starters in first round draft choice safety Kenny Vaccaro and free agent cornerback Keenan Lewis. Vaccaro was a PFWA All-Rookie selection as he led the secondary with 93 tackles. Lewis led the team with a career-high four interceptions in his first year with the club. The Saints increased their interception total from nine in 2011 to 15 in 2012, with four being returned for touchdowns, tied for the third-highest total in club history.
