When I heard that Gayle mentioning every season Payton would inform the Saints that he is committed, This can’t be normal.

Do normal HCs do this every year? Letting the team know if he is back/returning? I’m confused.

Which tells me, the organization already knew he was going to be leaving soon

I had a feeling this was coming when he quit the NFL competition committee earlier this year and said that "it was time" and that he wasn't going to say more because he didn't want to have to pay the fines.

I didn't want to admit it, but I had a feeling.
Also the fact that he didn't spew any venom towards the league is proof to me that he will be back on the sidelines in the future.

Watching him stumble and stutter up there shows how much he will miss the Saints. And it sounds to me like he will miss coaching as well. We may see him coaching again in the 2023 season.

Tweet is entitled, "12 years ago today: "PIGS HAVE FLOWN!" ", but...

they cut the video before he says that!

:shrug:

ETA: Weird - I Googled and Bing'd and searched other engines for "Jim Henderson, "Pigs have flown, hell has frozen over, the Saints are going to the Super bowl!"" and nothing comes up as regards a video of that call!

I look at Belicheck and Tomlin and don’t see them leaving anytime soon. I think Payton wants to keep coaching, but for another franchise. I believe he thinks he can’t win another championship with the Saints.

On WWL yesterday they said Payton was quoted as saying he didn't want to coach well into his 60s and the current Saints contract would take him to 60 and it would probably his last contract period.

So maybe he does go the Cowher way and stays retired. Maybe he gets the itch to coach again...who knows.
