Source: Tulane hires Curtis Johnson
Tulane will introduce its new head coach, New Orleans Saints wide receivers coach Curtis Johnson, at 2 p.m. ET on Monday, a source told ESPN.com's Joe Schad.
Johnson was on the sideline with the Saints on Sunday night for their 31-17 win against the Detroit Lions.
Tulane is hoping Johnson, a New Orleans native who has been with the Saints since 2006, can turn around a program that has not been to a bowl since 2002.
The Green Wave have gone 31-76 since then, never winning more than five games in a season.
In October, coach Bob Toledo resigned with a 15-40 record in four-and-a-half seasons.
