Nobody thought that Sean Payton was done coaching football for good when he left the New Orleans Saints at the end of last season. He spent this year with FOX as a studio analyst, but that doesn’t mean he wasn’t actively thinking about being back on an NFL sideline.

Payton was a guest on The Herd on Monday and told Colin Cowherd that he had a few casual conversations during the season about a potential return.

“I have talked to a few teams,” he said. “That was just done with permission through the Saints.”

He listed the Carolina Panthers, Denver Broncos and the Houston Texans as teams he has already had contact with.

Any deal Payton makes has to be approved by the Saints, who still have him under contract. When Cowherd asked Sean Payton to speculate what the team would want in return, the coach said that discussion was up to the Saints, but he would guess it would be a draft pick in the mid-to-late first round.

During the season, Jay Glazer reported that the Panthers had reached out to him about playing middleman to set up an interview with Payton. At the time, Glazer told FOX Sports Radio that he did not see a way that Payton would want to coach that team.

To the contrary, Payton says he expects to meet with the team’s owner David Tepper in New York later this week.

Albert Breer reported last month that Sean Payton has enjoyed living and working in Southern California. He suggested that if the Los Angeles Chargers do not make a change, he may be inclined to return to FOX in 2023.

Payton didn’t directly acknowledge that report but did insinuate that he feels any urgency about taking a job this year.

“If nothing happens this year and we go next year, that changes things considerably,” he said in regard to what the Saints would expect in return.

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.”

Colin Cowherd: Tony Romo Regressing Because He Loves Golf

“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.
