Sean Payton’s bad 2012 isn’t getting any better.
Payton, the Saints head coach who is suspended for the year for his role in the team’s bounty program, is getting divorced, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune.
According to the report, Payton filed for divorce from his wife, Beth, citing “discord or conflict of personalities between Petitioner and Respondent that destroys the legitimate ends of the marriage relationship and prevents any reasonable expectation of reconciliation.” Beth filed a counter-petition asking for “exclusive right to designate the primary residence of the children in Tarrant County, Texas.”
Beth Payton is also asking for the exclusive right to make decisions about the medical, legal and educational interests of the couple’s two children, and she has requested that Sean Payton pay child support.
July 11 is Sean and Beth Payton’s 20th wedding anniversary.
