Will still coach the Saints

In a statement released by the team on Tuesday, general manager
Mickey Loomis says he is confident that Payton, who led the Saints
to their first Super Bowl title two seasons ago, will continue to

settling in Dallas for some time and feel that now is the best time
to make the move.

many of whom have expressed consternation and confusion on call-in
