New Orleans Saints owner Gayle Benson told reporters on Monday that he doesn’t know if coach Sean Payton will continue next season.
“I don’t think anyone knows, but he’ll tell us soon,” Gayle Benson said. Sean Payton, 58, is currently under contract until the end of the 2024 season. According to reports, several TV broadcasters have already expressed interest in Sean Payton.
The New Orleans Saints are 9-8 this season and miss the playoffs for the first time in five years. But it was a combination of factors: the retirement of Drew Brees, injuries to several major players, cap space, the impact of the new crown epidemic. The New Orleans Saints also had to practice in Dallas during the first month of the season due to the hurricane.
If Sean Payton ultimately decides to leave, the New Orleans Saints’ next head coaching candidates could be defensive coordinator Dennis Allen or offensive coordinator Pete Carmichael Jr.
