Sean Payton won't be seen on an NFL sideline this year, but he's already landed his next job.
While serving a season-long, league-imposed suspension for his role in the New Orleans Saints' "bounty" scandal, Payton has taken the reins of his son Connor's sixth-grade football team, the Liberty Christian Warriors.
"I don't want to do anything that interrupts what I do as a coach," Payton told The Times-Picayune on Friday. "I'm an assistant coach working with the offense."
In Friday's practice, Payton helped install a spread attack that generated 473 passing yards in the first half of a controlled scrimmage against the St. Izzy Bugbears (OK, that's not true). But we do imagine it will be a challenge for the coach to keep his hands off the playbook.
No word if a mega-bored Gregg Williams will travel south by Greyhound bus to live at the local YMCA and teach pass-rush techniques to beguiled Christian Warriors defenders. Our call: unlikely.
