Saints coach Sean Payton has made clear his desire to join the media. He apparently will.

Via Katherine Terrell of TheAthletic.com, Payton said Tuesday that he’s likely taking a studio job with a network to be named later.

“I think so, I just don’t want to be the one that puts my foot in my mouth before the company does,” Payton said. “But it is. Soon. Probably a studio job.”

Payton has been linked most strongly to Fox and Amazon. He’s expected to return to coaching, which makes it easier from him to transition into — and out of — the job.

    Didn’t he just say the opposite when he quit????

    That’s because, “when he quit” he thought he was heading to Miami….with Brady!…..

    No – actually “when he quit” he said he did not plan to coach this (coming) year, and (1) he really wanted to try TV, and (2) he could see coaching again, but not this coming year.

    And, it would not be beyond belief to see him return to the Saints!

  3. Again I tell ya. He will not coach this season. The price is to steep. He is a commodity and the SAINTS own that commodity!!
