“McAfee said it could be a situation like Bruce Arians where after a year as an analyst, Payton will get bit by the football bug again.”

Sean Payton has yet to reveal his official plans for the 2022 NFL season, but it appears that the former New Orleans Saints head coach is headed for FOX.

Over on The Pat McAfee Show on Monday, McAfee and company didn’t seem convinced that the TV side of things is where Payton will stay. McAfee said it could be a situation like Bruce Arians where after a year as an analyst, Payton will get bit by the football bug again.

He cited the Netflix movie Home Team, which came out last year. The punter-turned-talk-show-host joked that it was a documentary that showed Sean Payton didn’t know his wife and kids existed until he was forced to take a year off from football.

The show speculated if Mike McCarthy is fired as the Dallas Cowboys coach that Payton would come back if he got the job.

“If Big Mike doesn’t have the year that everybody expects the Dallas Cowboys to have, regardless of Jerry Jones showing their entire draft board or not, is that where Sean Payton’s thinking about going?” Pat McAfee asked.

“If that Dallas gig comes open, and Sean Payton is offered that gig, I imagine he’ll take it,” A.J. Hawk said.

Hawk added that Payton just has that passion for the game of football that he won’t be able to stay away from coaching.

“I think he’ll be good on TV. I really do. But he seems like one of those guys. A coach’s coach, man,” he said. “That’s what they do. They love it, the live for the 22-hour days trying to figure out what to do. Like what the defense is giving you, how I can beat them.”

670 The Score morning host Mike Mulligan is being awarded the Father Finnegan Memorial Award from Loyola University Chicago this weekend, and some of his colleagues congratulated him on the air Friday morning.

The award is given “in recognition of outstanding humanitarianism and service to youth through athletics”. Mulligan — a 1984 graduate of Loyola University Chicago — will receive the award Saturday during the Loyola Athletics Hall of Fame ceremony during a game against George Mason.

“Tremendous award,” co-host David Haugh said. “Proud moment for the show. Proud moment for you family.”

“They’re giving me an award for correctly picking the Super Bowl on September 8th,” Mulligan joked.

“That is fantastic,” Laurence Holmes said, while his co-host, Dan Bernstein, continued to say “wow”. “Congratulations. You shouldn’t be embarrassed. You should be proud.”

“I’m being celebrated for being old,” Mully joked.

“That’s not what that award says,” countered Holmes. “It says something completely different.”

The Mully & Haugh host eventually admitted he was appreciative of the award bestowed upon him by his alma mater.

“It’s a good thing. I’m very moved by it. Sister Jean will be there,” Mully said. “She has a book coming out with — I think — Seth Davis.”

“I’ve always felt like Tony Romo is one of those guys — and we all have somebody in our social circle like this — he got the golf bug. He’s had it for 15 years.

The performance of CBS Sports NFL analyst Tony Romo has been a hot-button topic in sports media circles, especially after a widely-regarded lackluster performance during the AFC Championship Game. Colin Cowherd believes he knows why Romo has regressed.

During an episode of The Colin Cowherd Podcast, the sports radio host claimed golf is the reason behind Romo’s regression.

“Romo wants to be on the Tour. He literally wants to be on the Tour,” Cowherd said. “And what’s the first thing Aaron Rodgers does in the off-season? He goes and golfs, he loves it. Both, by the way, great golfers, especially Romo. But I’ve always felt like Tony Romo is one of those guys — and we all have somebody in our social circle like this — he got the golf bug. He’s had it for 15 years.

“Tony wants to be on the PGA Tour — but he likes the paycheck from CBS.”

Cowherd also added he hasn’t hired potential employees in the past if they told him they loved golf during the interview process, saying he has a theory that as men age they “get addicted to golf”.

“They’re on PGATour.com, they’re putting in the backyard, they’re thinking about it at work, they’re scheduling a trip to Scotland and they lose sight of their other job,” Cowherd said.
