Saints coach Sean Payton staying put

New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton is staying put. "I'll be here as long as they'll have me," Payton said. "I know it appeared there was a looming decision. But I think this is really me saying again, 'Here I am, and nothing's changing.' This is where I plan on coaching. And I don't envision myself ever coaching for any other club." Payton has been with the Saints for nine seasons, winning one Super Bowl. Payton has two years remaining on his contract. "If I have to someday become that villain, I plan on staying until everyone says, 'We're burning your wagon out of town,'" Payton said. "And I'm comfortable with that. But I think that honestly, more importantly, there's more moments, there's more wins, there's more playoffs. I promise you there will be."
