FRISCO - Sean Payton has much to be thankful for when reflecting back on his time in New Orleans and the time he spent with the Saints organization. During his tenure, Payton led the Saints to victory in Super Bowl XLIV, seven NFC South titles, and nine playoff appearances. Multiple reports early on Tuesday had Payton deciding to step away from coaching and retire from the NFL.
ERIC BIENIEMY Offensive Coordinator Kansas City Chiefs Bieniemy has been one of the hottest assistant coaching names for the last four years. He's had several interviews and is the favorite among Saints fans if the team hires outside the organization. The 52-year-old Bieniemy is a native of New Orleans.
The New Orleans Saints will be traversing some unfamiliar territory this offseason, set to enter the first year of the post-Sean Payton regime. The team will be looking to get back into the playoffs after missing out in 2021, but they have some work to do in the offseason in order to achieve their goals. Unfortunately, the team is in the worst financial situation of any organization in the NFL, currently projected to sit a shocking $74 million over the cap this offseason.
