After the Dallas Cowboys declined to offer Jason Garrett a contract extension, there was another round of rumors that Jerry Jones might try to find a way to pry his former assistant away from the Saints
Payton scoffed at the rumors when asked Thursday during a WWL radio interview.
“I’m in my 13th year. I don’t know how to answer it,” he said, via Josh Katzenstein of The Times-Picayune. “I feel like it’s every other year; it’s on the odd number years, so 2019 it comes up and then we’ll hear it in 2021…
“I’ve got fleur-de-lis tattoos that can’t be erased!”
Sean Payton on @WWLAMFM about the continued rumors of him eventually coaching the Cowboys: “I’ve got fleur-de-lis tattoos that can’t be erased.”

When asked if he’s staying in New Orleans, Payton replied bluntly:
“That’s clearly the plan.”
The Saints are 118-74 in the regular season under Payton in the 12 years since he left Dallas for New Orleans, and 8-6 in the playoffs, including their only Super Bowl.
