The Saints coach plans on returning to New Orleans for a 12th season
If the Saints decide to trade Sean Payton this offseason, it will be against his wishes. The 53-year-old coach revealed Monday that he definitely wants to return for a 12th season with the Saints.
During his weekly radio show on WWL in New Orleans, Payton was asked about his future and for once, he gave a definitive answer.
"My plan is definitely to be back here," Payton said, via NOLA.com. "And, shoot, I've got four more years on a contract here, and I plan on honoring that."
Payton was then asked if the Saints were the only team that he's interested in coaching in 2017.
"Yeah, absolutely," Payton said.
This was a big difference from Sunday when Payton said, "Next question" after being asked if he'd be coaching the Saints next season following New Orleans' 38-32 loss to Atlanta.
