The New Orleans Saints have locked in their leader for another five years.
Head coach Sean Payton has agreed to a five-year contract extension worth just over $45 million. Payton has coached for the Saints for the last nine seasons, guiding the team to a win in Super Bowl 44. He’s now committed to the Saints through the 2020 season.
Payton has compiled an 87-57 regular season record since taking over the team in 2006.
