    Joe Lombardi

    Joe Lombardi enters his fifth season with the Saints and third as quarterbacks coach after having served as an offensive assistant the first two years.

    Last season under Lombardi’s guidance, Drew Brees was selected to his fifth Pro Bowl and became only the second NFL passer to have five straight seasons with 4,000 yards after finishing with 4,620 passing yards, second only to his 5,069 yard total in 2008. Brees also finished with 33 touchdowns passes for his fourth consecutive season of 30 or more touchdowns.

    In Lombardi’s first season as quarterbacks coach in 2009, Brees enjoyed a banner campaign, completing 363-of-514 passes for 4,388 yards with 34 touchdowns, setting new career-highs with an NFL record 70.6 completion percentage and a league-leading 109.6 passer rating.

    In his previous position, he was heavily involved in the preparation of the quarterbacks and passing attack as well, having worked closely with offensive coordinator Pete Carmichael Jr. Lombardi also stepped in for a brief stint as the running backs coach near the end of 2008.

    He arrived in New Orleans with extensive coaching experience on both sides of the ball, most recently serving as defensive assistant for the Atlanta Falcons in 2006. While in that role, Lombardi worked with a defensive line that combined for 25.5 sacks.

    Bringing game-planning and play-calling experience to his position, he was the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach from 2002-05 at Mercyhurst College, also serving as recruiting coordinator.

    Lombardi coached tight ends and running backs for the New York/New Jersey Hitmen of the XFL. In 2000, he tutored the defensive line and served as strength & conditioning coordinator at Bucknell University.

    He coached both the tight ends and tackles at the Virginia Military Institute in 1999, and Lombardi opened his coaching career at the University of Dayton, where he was responsible for the defensive line from 1996-98. The Flyers won 20-straight games during his tenure.

    Lombardi – the grandson of legendary coach Vince Lombardi – is a 1994 graduate of the United States Air Force Academy, where he earned three letters as a tight end and one in lacrosse. Lombardi and his wife, Molly, have five children: sons Joseph, Thomas and Dominic and daughters Maria and Bernadette.

    Tom Clements
    Biography

    •Joined Packers Jan. 29, 2006.
    •Possesses 19 years of coaching experience, including two seasons as an NFL offensive coordinator.
    •Prior to Green Bay, spent 10 seasons coaching quarterbacks under some of the game’s most successful coaches, including Bill Cowher, Mike Ditka and Lou Holtz.
    •Played 12 years in the Canadian Football League at quarterback and was a seven-time divisional all-star and two-time Grey Cup champion; was inducted into the CFL Hall of Fame in 1994.
    •An All-American at Notre Dame in 1974, he finished fourth in Heisman Trophy balloting that year.
    •Practiced law for five years before beginning coaching career.


    Tom Clements, entering his 19th season in the coaching profession, is in his sixth year as Green Bay’s quarterbacks coach.

    Now in his 15th overall NFL season, Clements was named to his position Jan. 29, 2006, by Head Coach Mike McCarthy. Familiar with the role, Clements also served as quarterbacks coach for the Pittsburgh Steelers (2001-03), Kansas City Chiefs (2000) and New Orleans Saints (1997-99).

    In Green Bay, Clements’ extensive tutelage of Aaron Rodgers has paid dividends, as Rodgers became the first QB in league history to throw for at least 4,000 yards in each of his first two seasons as a starter, and he narrowly missed a third straight 4,000-yard season in 2010 with 3,933 yards despite missing 1½ games due to a concussion. In 47 career regular-season starts, Rodgers has topped the 100 mark in passer rating 25 times, thrown for 300 yards or three touchdowns 14 times each, and posted 10 games with three TDs and no interceptions, the most in NFL history by a quarterback within three seasons of his first start.

    Rodgers became the first quarterback in franchise history to record a 100-plus passer rating in consecutive seasons, with a 101.2 passer rating in 2010. He had a career-best 65.7 completion percentage last season, finished third in the league in passer rating (101.2) and second in average gain (8.26), and added a trio of three-touchdown outings in the postseason, including one against Pittsburgh that earned him Super Bowl XLV MVP honors.

    Clements has also tutored backup QB Matt Flynn, a seventh-round choice of the Packers in 2008. Flynn started his first career game in 2010, opening in place of an injured Rodgers at New England in Week 15, and became the first Green Bay QB to throw three TD passes in his first career start since Anthony Dilweg posted the same number vs. the Los Angeles Rams on Sept. 9, 1990.

    In 2009, Rodgers’ 4,434 passing yards fell just 25 yards short of topping Lynn Dickey’s 1983 franchise record and ranked fourth in the league. He also ranked fourth in the NFL in TD passes (30) and passer rating (103.2), and first in interception percentage (1.29) in earning his first Pro Bowl bid. The passer rating sits second in franchise history to Bart Starr’s 105.0 mark in 1966.

    Rodgers’ first 4,000-yard season in 2008 gave the Packers 4,000-yard passers in consecutive seasons for just the second time in team history, and for the first time in league history those back-to-back 4,000-yard passers were different QBs.

    The previous two seasons, in addition to tutoring Rodgers as the backup and heir apparent, Clements oversaw a mini-renaissance of Brett Favre’s career. In 2006, Favre reduced his interceptions from a career-high 29 the year before to just 18, setting the stage for a near-MVP season in 2007, when he surpassed 4,000 yards passing for the fifth time. He also posted a then career-best completion percentage of 66.5 and a QB rating of 95.7 that was his third best at that point in leading the Packers back to the playoffs.

    Before coming to Green Bay, Clements spent two seasons (2004-05) as offensive coordinator for the Buffalo Bills. In 2004, the Bills’ offense increased its scoring output by 152 and reduced its number of sacks allowed from 51 to 38, fewest by a Bills team since 1999. The unit was highlighted by RB Willis McGahee, who became the fifth running back in Bills history to register back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons, covering each year of Clements’ tenure. In addition, QB Kelly Holcomb set a club record in 2005 with a 67.39 completion percentage, surpassing Jim Kelly’s 1991 mark, 64.14 percent.

    Prior to joining the Bills, Clements served as Pittsburgh’s quarterbacks coach for three seasons (2001-03) under Bill Cowher. In 2002, he helped Tommy Maddox earn the Comeback Player of the Year award from The Associated Press, as Pittsburgh’s passing offense ranked seventh in the NFL, its highest finish since 1980 with Terry Bradshaw under center.

    Clements also worked with Pittsburgh’s Kordell Stewart (2001) and Kansas City’s Elvis Grbac (2000) during each quarterback’s best season, both culminating in Pro Bowl berths. Mike Ditka gave Clements his first NFL coaching job, hiring him to coach the Saints’ quarterbacks (1997-99), a group that included Jake Delhomme and Kerry Collins.

    Prior to his post with the Saints, Clements served under Lou Holtz as quarterbacks coach (1992-94) and wide receivers/assistant head coach (1995) at his alma mater, Notre Dame. While with the Fighting Irish, Clements coached eventual 1993 NFL Rookie of the Year QB Rick Mirer, and WR Derrick Mayes, the Packers’ second-round draft pick in 1996. In addition, he tutored QB Ron Powlus, Notre Dame’s career passing leader in attempts, completions, yardage and touchdowns at the time of his graduation.

    Inducted into the Canadian Football League’s Hall of Fame in 1994, Clements played quarterback for Ottawa (1975-7, Saskatchewan/Hamilton (1979), Hamilton (1981-82) and Winnipeg (1983-87) during a 12-year career in the CFL. Selected seven times as a divisional All-Star, Clements guided two teams, Ottawa (1976) and Winnipeg (1984), to Grey Cup Championships, earning the Outstanding Offensive Player award in each game. The league’s Rookie of the Year in 1975 and Most Valuable Player in 1987, Clements completed 2,807 of 4,657 passes (60.3 percent) for 39,041 yards and 252 touchdowns during his CFL career.

    Clements also spent one season, 1980, as a quarterback for Marv Levy’s Kansas City Chiefs.

    A three-year starter at Notre Dame (1972-74) under Ara Parseghian, Clements led the Irish to a 29-5 record, including an unblemished national championship season in 1973. An All-American in 1974, he finished fourth in Heisman Trophy balloting when Archie Griffin earned the award. Clements received his degree in economics from Notre Dame in 1975.

    A licensed attorney, Clements worked from 1988-92 for Bell, Boyd & Lloyd, a Chicago-based law firm. He pursued his law degree during his CFL playing career, graduating magna cum laude from Notre Dame’s School of Law in 1986. In 1994, while on the Notre Dame coaching staff, Clements was an Adjunct Associate Professor of Law at the university’s law school, where he taught “Sports and the Law.”

    Clements was born in McKees Rocks, Pa. He and his wife, Kathe, live in Green Bay. The couple has two grown children: daughter, Stevie, and son, Tom.

    Date of birth October 22, 1965 (age 46)
    Place of birth Los Angeles, California
    College Pacific



    Hue Jackson (born October 22, 1965) is an American football coach who most recently served as the head coach of the Oakland Raiders of the National Football League after previously serving as the team's offensive coordinator in 2010.[1][2]

    Before joining Oakland, Jackson served as offensive assistant coach for several NFL teams, most notably as the offensive coordinator for the Washington Redskins under Steve Spurrier and the Atlanta Falcons under Bobby Petrino.

    Early life and playing career

    Jackson, a native of Los Angeles, was a star quarterback at Dorsey High School in his hometown, where he also lettered in basketball. He starred in football at Glendale (Calif.) Community College in 1983 and 1984, where he earned his associate’s degree in 1984.

    Jackson played quarterback at Pacific in the mid-1980s under the late Bob Cope. As a junior, Jackson had 1,595 yards of total offense, including 502 yards rushing, second-most on the team. In his senior season, he passed for 1,455 yards and rushed for 417 yards. As a quarterback at Pacific from 1985-86, Jackson threw for 2,544 yards and 19 TDs and the Tigers went 9-14 in Jackson's two seasons. He also lettered in basketball in 1986 and earned his degree in Physical Education.

    Coaching career

    College

    He began his coaching career in 1987 at Pacific, his alma mater. Jackson spent 3 years (1987-89) there. From 1990-91, Jackson was the running backs coach and special teams coordinator at Cal State Fullerton. In the spring of 1991, he coached the running backs, receivers and special teams for the World League’s inaugural year champion London Monarchs. Then he spent 4 years (1992-95) at Arizona State, he was ASU’s running backs coach for the first 3 years (1992-94), then he handled the Sun Devil quarterbacks in 1995. He led California’s high-powered offense in 1996 as its offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach, he helped lead the Golden Bears to an Aloha Bowl berth. Jackson served as USC’s offensive coordinator from 1997-2000, helping to recruit and develop players, including QB Carson Palmer, with whom he was later reunited in Cincinnati and Oakland.

    Jackson also held 3 NFL summer coaching internships, in 1990 with the Los Angeles Rams, 1992 with the Phoenix Cardinals and 1995 with the Washington Redskins.

    National Football League

    Washington Redskins

    From 2001 until 2002, Jackson spent as Redskins’s running backs coach under Marty Schottenheimer and Steve Spurrier. In 2001, under Jackson’s tutelage, RB Stephen Davis rushed for 1,432 yards, breaking the record he had set in 1999 for most rushing yards in a season by a Redskin. In 2002, Davis was on pace for another 1,000-yard rushing season before suffering a season-ending injury. Jackson was promoted to offensive coordinator in Washington by head coach Steve Spurrier in 2003 and handled the team’s offensive play-calling, becoming the only coach to perform that duty other than Spurrier.

    Cincinnati Bengals

    Jackson was the wide receivers coach for the Cincinnati Bengals for 3 seasons. Under Jackson’s tutelage in Cincinnati, Chad Ochocinco and T. J. Houshmandzadeh became one of the most prolific wide-receiving tandems in the NFL.

In 2006, Ochocinco (1,369 yards) and Houshmandzadeh (1,081 yards) became the first pair of Bengals to eclipse the 1,000-yard receiving mark in a single season. In each of Jackson's 3 years in Cincinnati, Ochocinco was named to the Pro Bowl.

    Atlanta Falcons

    In 2007, after leaving Cincinnati, Jackson was an NFL offensive coordinator for the second time when he served in that capacity for the Atlanta Falcons under Bobby Petrino and Emmitt Thomas (Interim).

    Ties to Tomlin:

    Jim Caldwell http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_Cal...an_football%29

    College

    Caldwell served as an assistant coach at the University of Iowa, Southern Illinois University, Northwestern, Colorado, Louisville, and Penn State before being named head coach at Wake Forest in 1993. He was the first African-American coach in the ACC.

    In eight years, Caldwell had a record of 26–63. He installed a powerful passing attack that set numerous school records (many of which have since been broken under his successor, Jim Grobe). However, his teams rarely ran well; in one year the Demon Deacons' leading rusher only notched 300 yards for the entire season. He only had one winning season, in 1999 when the Deacons won the Aloha Bowl.
    [edit] Indianapolis Colts

    Caldwell joined Tony Dungy's staff with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2001 as quarterbacks coach. He followed Dungy to Indianapolis in 2002 and remained with him for his entire tenure, helping lead the Colts to a win in Super Bowl XLI.

    On January 13, 2008, Caldwell was formally announced as Dungy's successor-in-waiting. On January 12, 2009, Dungy announced his retirement, putting Caldwell in the head coaching position.[1] He was formally introduced at a press conference the following day.[2]

    Caldwell had one of the best debut seasons for a head coach in NFL history, finishing with a 14–2 record. The Colts rushed out to a 14–0 start. With the AFC South title and the top seed in the AFC playoffs secured, Caldwell opted (on orders from then GM, Bill Polian) to sit out his starting players the last two games of the season (both losses), drawing controversy to him and the team.[3] He later won his first playoff game against the Baltimore Ravens on January 16, 2010. On January 24, 2010, Caldwell became the 5th rookie head coach to lead his team to the Super Bowl with a 30–17 victory over the New York Jets. Caldwell holds the NFL record for the best start by a rookie head coach, starting his career with 14 wins. The 14 wins also tied a franchise record.

    On February 7, 2010, Caldwell's rookie season ended with a 31–17 loss in Super Bowl XLIV to the New Orleans Saints. In his second season the Colts reached the playoffs where they lost in disappointing fashion to the New York Jets 17–16 on January 8, 2011.

    Following a 2–14 record in 2011, Caldwell was fired on January 17, 2012. [4]

    CLYDE CHRISTENSEN

    BIO

    Clyde Christensen enters his second season as offensive coordinator of the Colts. This marks Christensen’s 10th season with the club and his 16th in the NFL. He served as assistant head coach/wide receivers in 2008, and he spent 2002-07 as wide receivers coach. Christensen joined Indianapolis from Tampa Bay, where he served as offensive coordinator during the 2001 season.

    In 2010, Christensen oversaw an offense that posted its 13th consecutive season with 5,000+ net yards, while the club posted 400+ points for the 10th time in the past 12 seasons. QB-Peyton Manning was 450-679-4,700, 33 TDs/17 ints. Manning set club seasonal-bests in completions, attempts and yards, while his completion total also set the NFL seasonal record. Manning extended his own NFL records with his 13th consecutive 25+-TD season and an 11th 4,000+-yardage season. WR-Reggie Wayne (111-1,355, 6 TDs) produced his seventh consecutive 1,000+-yardage season and a third 100+-reception season. Missing Anthony Gonzalez (injury), WRs-Austin Collie (58-649, 8 TDs), Pierre Garcon (67-784, 6 TDs) and rookie free agent Blair White (36-355, 5 TDs) played key roles. Wayne (787-10,748, 69 TDs) moved past Raymond Berry into 2nd-place in Colts career touchdown receptions, and he became the 34th NFL player with 10,000+ yards, the 11th to post consecutive 100+ seasons (the 7th to top 100 at least three times). Wayne’s 779 snares and 10,602 yards from Manning rank 2nd-most in NFL history for a tandem (Manning-Harrison), and 67 scoring receptions from Manning rank the duo 4th in NFL history. Collie amassed his totals in nine outings, while Garcon missed two games and White opened four of 13 outings. TE-Jacob Tamme (67-631, 4 TDs) started the final eight games for Dallas Clark (injury). This marked the third straight year and fourth time since 2004 the club had four players with 50+ receptions. The offensive line tied for the NFL-low with 16 sacks in 695 pass attempts. The one sack allowed for 43.4 attempts ranked as the 2nd-best mark in club history, just behind one for 47.2 in 2009. The line had four different starting configurations as the club produced the league’s 4th-ranked offense and top-ranked passing attack. The club tied the NFL record with a ninth straight playoff berth. Manning, C-Jeff Saturday and Wayne earned Pro Bowl bids.

    In 2009, Wayne (100-1,264, 10 TDs) moved past Berry into 2nd-place in Colts career receptions and yards. Missing Marvin Harrison (retirement) and Gonzalez (injury), Collie (60-676, 7 TDs) and Garcon (47-765, 4 TDs) had solid seasons. Wayne teamed with TE-Dallas Clark (100) as the Colts became just the fourth team with two 100+ seasonal receivers. Collie produced some of the best rookie seasonal totals in club history, and Garcon became a feared target. The receivers helped Manning produce a team seasonal-best 68.8 completion percentage and helped the club to a 14-0 start. Garcon (21-251, 2 TDs), Collie (17-241, 2 TDs) and Wayne (16-164, 1 TD) had good playoff showings. In 2008, Wayne (82-1,145, 6 TDs), Harrison (60-636, 5 TDs) and Gonzalez (57-664, 4 TDs) ranked among the top Colts receivers. Harrison (1,102-14,580, 128 TDs) returned from injury and ended his illustrious tenure with the club by ranking 2nd in NFL career receptions, 4th in yards and 5th in touchdown receptions. He and Manning remained among the finest NFL QB-WR tandems (953 completions, 12,766 yards, 112 TDs). Harrison ended the season ranking T2nd in NFL history with 59 100+ games and 9th in NFL career touchdowns. He had receptions in 190 consecutive games, the 2nd-longest NFL streak and the most ever to open a career. Gonzalez followed a rookie season by increasing his totals in 2008. In 2007, Harrison had an injury-interrupted season, while Wayne (104-1,510, 10 TDs) and Gonzalez (37-576, 3 TDs) performed well. Wayne became then only the 16th NFL receiver with a 1,500+ season. Wayne became only the third NFL receiver to increase seasonal reception totals over the first seven career seasons (Berry, 1955-61; Shawn Jefferson, 1991-97), and Gonzalez’s performance ranked among the best in club history by a rookie. With the performances of Manning (4,040), Wayne and RB-Joseph Addai (1,072), Indianapolis earned its NFL-record seventh offense with a 4,000+ passer and 1,000+ rusher and receiver. In the NFL’s 91 seasons, the Colts own seven of the league’s 37 such offenses. In 2006, Harrison (95-1,366, 12 TDs) and Wayne (86-1,310, 9 TDs) earned Pro Bowl honors. Harrison became the only NFL receiver with eight straight 1,000+-yard and 10+-TD seasons. In 2005, Harrison (82-1,146, 12 TDs) and Wayne (83-1,055, 5 TDs) played key roles in the club’s 13-0 start. In 2004, Christensen’s unit had one of the best seasonal performances in NFL history. Harrison (86-1,113, 15 TDs), Wayne (77-1,210, 12 TDs) and WR-Brandon Stokley (68-1,077, 10 TDs) became the first NFL receiving trio to post 1,000+-yardage and 10+-touchdown seasons. The performances stood along with San Diego (1980), Washington (1989), Atlanta (1995) and Arizona (200 as then the only teams with a trio of 1,000+ receivers. Harrison (4), Wayne (4) and Stokley (5) had 13 of the club’s 14 regular-season 100+ yardage games, and Wayne (10-221 vs. Denver) broke the club’s playoff yardage record of Berry (178, 1958 NFL Championship Game). In 2002, Christensen helped Harrison become then the only NFL player with 100+ receptions in four consecutive seasons (115, 1999; 102, 2000; 109, 2001; 143, 2002), while he set the NFL seasonal reception mark. Harrison was 94-1,262, 10 TDs in 2003, and he set then the five best seasons in club history during his 1999-03 performances.

    Christensen spent six seasons at Tampa Bay, tutoring tight ends from 1996-98 and quarterbacks from 1999-00 before being promoted to offensive coordinator. The club made four playoff appearances during that span. In 2001, WR-Keyshawn Johnson (106 receptions) and QB-Brad Johnson (340 completions) posted franchise seasonal marks. Christensen helped the late-season development of rookie QB-Shaun King in 1999. King led Tampa Bay to four wins late wins for the NFC Central title, becoming then the second rookie quarterback since the 1970 Merger to win a playoff game.

    Before joining Tampa Bay, Christensen spent 1994-95 as co-offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach at Clemson. From 1992-93, he served as quarterbacks coach at Maryland, tutoring QBs-John Kaleo and Scott Milanovich. Kaleo ranked 2nd nationally in total offense in 1992 while Milanovich finished fourth in 1993. In 1991, Christensen served as running backs coach at South Carolina. He was receivers/tight ends coach at Holy Cross in 1989, then was promoted to offensive coordinator in 1990.

    From 1986-88, Christensen was offensive coordinator, running backs and quarterbacks coach and in charge of recruiting at East Carolina. Christensen oversaw quarterbacks and wide receivers at Temple from 1983-85, after serving as quarterbacks and receivers coach at East Tennessee State from 1980-82. He began his coaching career as a graduate assistant at Mississippi in 1979.

    Christensen was an All-America quarterback at Fresno City Junior College in 1975. He continued his collegiate career as a QB at North Carolina, where he lettered from 1977-78, as the school earned Peach and Liberty Bowl bids. Christensen holds a bachelor’s degree in industrial relations from North Carolina.

    Christensen was born on January 28, 1956 in Covina, Calif. Christensen and his wife, Debbie, have three daughters, Rachel, Rebecca and Ruth. They reside in Indianapolis.
