NFL Commissioner, Roger Goodell has reinstated Sean Payton as the New Orleans Saints Head Coach. Sean Payton was suspended for the season after the report of the Saints Bounty scandal. On Monday the two had a meeting discussing Sean Payton’s suspension where he took full responsibility for his players and coaching staff. Originally Sean Payton was not supposed to be lifted from his suspension on February 3rd.
“Sean fully complied with all the requirements imposed on him during his suspension. More important, it is clear that Sean understands and accepts his responsibilities as a head coach and the vital role that coaches play in promoting player safety and setting an example for how the game should be played at all levels. We are committed to delivering football that fans love and the safety players deserve. Coach Payton agrees and I look forward to working with him going forward to do that.”
