NBC NATIONAL NEWS — New Orleans Saints Interim Head Coach Joe Vitt’s suspension has been extended by a week because of the Saints 2012 schedule.
The Black and Gold have a bye in Week 6, meaning his six-game suspension in connection with the Saints bounty probe won't end until after the completion of the team’s Week 7 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The Saints open up the regular season on September 9 against the Washington Redskins at home.
