Saints Lock Up Head Coach Sean Payton With a New Five-Year Deal

The Saints have reportedly locked up head coach Sean Payton to a five-year deal, this according to Fox Sports.

Payton trails only Bill Belichick of the Patriots in terms of coaching tenure, as he was hired by New Orleans back in 2006, winning a Super Bowl over the Indianapolis Colts in Miami in February of 2010.

The Saints coach is 8-6 in the postseason, including the Super Bowl victory.

There were rumors that the Cowboys and owner Jerry Jones had interest in hiring Payton away from the Saints.

“This is home,” Payton told NFL Network’s Michael Silver last week.

“I have a house here. I’m here full-time. Every year, we do more.”

Payton has a career coaching mark of 119-74.
