Will Parcells Coach The Saints? Will Payton Join Fox?

The New Orleans Saints are in uncharted waters. No NFL head coach has ever been suspended for an entire season.

Speculation is rampant that Sean Payton has asked coaching legend Bill Parcells to step in and coach the Saints in his abscence. Payton served as a Parcells assistant for three years before Joining the Saints in 2006. Parcells is the only coach in NFL history to take four different teams to the playoffs. Parcells says he hasn’t been contacted by the Saints’ organization.

Meanwhile, what does Sean do with a year off from coaching? His suspension doesn’t take effect until Sunday. He’s currently attending the NFL Owners meetings in Florida.

There are reports he’s been contacted by Fox Sports

about working as an analyst during Fox broadcasts of NFL games.

“Our feeling about Sean is that he’s bright, articulate and obviously contemporary.Any network with NFL rights would have to consider it.”    -Lou D’Ermilio, Fox’s senior vice president of communications.

However this all plays out, it’s going to be a memorable year.
