Sean Payton Leaves Saints | Football Outsiders

NFL Conference Championship – Note that the language here appears to be that Sean Payton is “stepping away from the Saints,” not necessarily that he is “retiring.” I wouldn’t be surprised if he was interested in taking another job down the line. (Hello, Cowboys!) Payton made the playoffs in nine of 15 seasons, won seven division titles, and brought New Orleans its first Super Bowl. He’s also leaving the team completely wrecked on the salary cap, currently an estimated $74 million over the cap according to That ridiculous Taysom Hill contract? Some other head coach has to deal with that now.
