Will Sean Payton Become An Analyst?

During his impending year away from coaching the New Orleans Saints of the National Football League, for his suspension due to the bounty scandal, will Sean Payton entertain offers to become a pundit and prognosticator?

Should he be allowed to?

How Will Sean Payton Spend His Year Away?

There’s no law that he would be breaking, and it seems likely that he will get offers.  He is a Super Bowl-winning head coach.

He surely won’t get any offers from the NFL Network, but what about ESPN or FOX?  How controversial would this be, or how inappropriate, if he were to take a job offer as an analyst?

He is due to lose $7+ million dollars, so he’s going to need income.  He’s probably going to lose endorsements or not gain new ones, so any money coming in is appreciated.

Is he going to get blackballed by TV networks and get no offers?  ESPN has already announced it has no plans to bring Payton on.

Could Payton ultimately end up getting fired for good by the Saints?

Maybe he lacks analyst opportunities for a year, then they come after the the scandal starts to wear down. Perhaps he gets his chance anew with a different team if the Saints let him go.  It’s impossible to say for sure.

These are unprecedented waters for all involved.

And what about Gregg Williams? Does he end up going to the college game? Would any university take a chance on either of these guys after Penn St.?

Payton lost out for the same reasons as Paterno, lack of institutional control.

Payton as an analyst might rub a lot of people the wrong way.  There could be push back from advertisers.

Time will tell as the NFL world turns.
