Will New Dallas Resident New Orleans Saint Payton Be Next Cowboy Coach?
Written by 

Is Sean Payton really staying to coach the New Orleans Saints while at the same time living in Dallas Texas?

A recent national story says “While Sean Payton is not leaving the New Orleans Saints for a position with the Dallas Cowboys as rumored, a source close to Payton confirmed he is purchasing a home in the Dallas area and plans to commute between the two cities as the Saints' head coach for the first time. “

"Sean Payton is the coach of the New Orleans Saints. He will not be going to the Dallas Cowboys in any capacity," the Saints said via a release.

According to reports, Payton, his wife and their children will live in a home they are purchasing in the exclusive Vaquero Club, an upscale golf community in Westlake that is home to numerous PGA Tour professionals as well as the Jonas Brothers.

The Paytons will enroll their children in school in their new Texas neighborhood. Payton became interested in Vaquero when he lived in nearby Southlake while working as an assistant coach under Bill Parcells with the Cowboys.

Payton estimates that flying on a private plane is 90 minutes door to door from his office at the Saints complex to the family's new home, which he believes allows him to remain committed to the Saints while moving his family to the area where he and Beth intend to eventually retire.


So, curious minds want to know:

Is Jimmy Jones, who is said to have purchased exclusive acres in “Heaven” up to making an offer to Payton that he cannot refuse?

Do you really believe that Payton is commuting daily from Dallas?

What message does Payton’s move make to the world about living in New Orleans?

Or, is this just post-Super Bowl talk, distance-commuting is normal and it's all much ado about nothing?
