NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell might allow Sean Payton to coach the Saints if he appeals his season-long suspension for his role in the team’s bounties program.
Goodell said Monday at the league meetings in Palm Beach, Fla., that should Payton appeal, he “probably” would let him continue coaching after April 1, when the suspension is to begin. Payton’s agent said Monday “no decisions have been made about an appeal.”
Meanwhile, former NFL coach Bill Parcells says he’s spoken to the suspended head coach but adds that no one from the team has talked to him about coaching the Saints this year. Parcells says that Payton has spoken to him about how to handle the season.
The Saints have yet to announce their future coaching plans.
