Sean Payton reportedly makes decision on future with New Orleans Saints
Sean Payton has been rumored to be considering a change since the New Orleans Saints’ season came to an end.
Still under contract with the team, Payton reportedly decided on his future on Tuesday afternoon.
Per NFL insider Ian Rapoport, Payton will step away from the Saints and retire instead of coaching the rest of the years on his contract:

Will this be the last we see of Payton as an NFL coach? He’s still only 58, but he is under contract with New Orleans through the 2024 season.
Where will the Saints turn for their next coach? The NFL coaching carousel is still spinning at full speed, it seems!
