Sean Payton To Keep On Coaching
Suspended New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton says he will continue to coach during he’s year long suspension instead of taking a job as a football analyst.
Payton said he plans to spend more time with his family while he is away from the job and that includes coaching his 12 year old son Connor and his Dallas based team.
Payton said the support he has received from fans is “humbling.” Payton could take a television job but would not be allowed in NFL stadiums during the season.
“We’ve got the greatest fans in this sport,” Payton said. “There’s a close relationship that I … don’t take for granted.”
“I look forward to cutting the oranges, hauling the Gatorade and watching my son play every game — and being a part of calling plays for his offense and doing some things like that that really get me excited and I know get him excited.”
