Report: Sean Payton has interest in coaching Colts, LA team


Rumors continue to swirl that Sean Payton and the New Orleans Saints might decide to part ways after the season, and there’s a chance Payton could end up in Los Angeles.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that Payton has “discussed privately” the possibility of coaching the Chargers, who are the top candidate to relocate to L.A. next season. Rapoport’s colleague Albert Breer hinted that Payton has interest in any team that moves to L.A. and could also wind up with the Colts.

The L.A. speculation makes sense, as Payton was previously linked to the USC job because his daughter goes to college at Pepperdine University.

There’s no guarantee Payton leaves New Orleans, and the future of Drew Brees and his $30 million salary cap hit for 2016 could play a big role in determining the coach’s next move. But if the Saints do make Payton available, we already know there are several NFL teams that will be interested. He should have no trouble finding work in L.A. or elsewhere.
