Sean Payton Reportedly Ghosting People as He Remains Undecided on Returning to Saints Next Season

Sean Payton remains undecided.

Saints head coach Sean Payton has been under the radar the last few weeks, you know with the whole NFL playoffs thing happening.

Sean Payton is always in the news, now it’s being reported the Saints head coach hasn’t committed to returning to New Orleans next season.

To make things even a little more intriguing, Payton is ghosting people that are ‘close to him’

Via NFL.com:

“Sources say that Payton, who has three years left on his contract, has not committed to returning to coach for another season in New Orleans. He has not yet informed the organization for whom he’s coached since 2006 that he will definitely return.

Multiple attempts by NFL.com to reach Payton went unreturned.

Payton has been on vacation for more than a week, and a person turning off their phone while on vacation is not unprecedented. Payton using the time to decide if he wants to return or step away for a year is noteworthy, however, and he has gone dark on several people close to him.”

The last several years Payton has been rumored to be out of New Orleans, but year after year he always ends up with the Saints.

Might it be time for a change of scenery for Payton?

He definitely doesn’t want to be any part of a rebuild.
