Pete Carmichael Jr., the offensive coordinator for the New Orleans Saints, is reportedly a target of Boston College athletic director Brad Bates in the search for a new head coach for the football program, Adam Schefter reports.

Carmichael is a Medway, Massachusetts native who was hired by the Saints in 2006 as a quarterback coach and was promoted to offensive coordinator in 2009. In six seasons with New Orleans, the Saints' offense has been the best in the NFL four times and led the league in scoring in 2008 and 2009.

Before joining the Saints, Carmichael worked as an offensive assistant and assistant wide receivers coach for the San Diego Chargers (2002-2005). He was also an offensive assistant for the Washington Redskins (2001) and a tight ends/offensive assistant coach for the Cleveland Browns (2000).

Carmichael has college experience as well, serving as a quarterbacks coach at Louisiana Tech University from 1995-1999 and an assistant offensive line coach for the University of New Hampshire (1994). He does not have any head coaching experience and did not play football in college or professionally.
