Sean Payton will coach his son's football team

Suspended New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton is considering taking a job as a football analyst this fall.

But Payton, in an appearance at the TPC Louisiana today, said he plans to spend more time with his family while he is away from the job. According to the New Orleans Times-Picayune, he will coach his 12-year-old son Connor’s team.

Payton said the support he has received from fans is “humbling.” Payton could take a television job but would not be allowed in NFL stadiums during the season. So, you might see him in a studio talking football soon.

From his comments, he seems to be doing OK during his suspension, which is without pay.

"We've got the greatest fans in this sport," Payton said. "There's a close relationship that I ... don't take for granted."
