It took the Saints a long time to find a head coach that could lead them to the promised land. They should be able to keep him for a while.
There has been a lot of speculation about how long Sean Payton will stay with the Saints. During a compelling interview Tuesday on PFT Live, Payton tied his future in part to Drew Brees.
“I think we got at least another good 5 or 6 years in us here,” Payton said when asked how long he’d continue coaching. “The correct answer would be as long as Brees is here and we feel like we’re in this window of opportunity.”
Payton told Florio that he’s looking forward to another contract.
“I’m very comfortable here, we’re excited, and really look forward to being here for quite a while and signing another extension when that time comes,” Payton said.
