Sean Payton has decided to step away from the New Orleans Saints’ coach after 16 years, according to Ian Rapoport from NFL Network.

Payton, 58, leaves the Saints with an overall regular-season record of 152-89 and a postseason mark of 9-8, including one Super Bowl victory and the 2006 AP Coach of the Year award, in 16 seasons.

Payton made his mark as the winningest coach in Saints history and one of the NFL’s all-time great offensive minds. Sean Payton arrived in 2006 the same year as Drew Brees and the team would win the Super Bowl in 2009.

Payton and the Saints rank first in NFL history in both points scored (27.6 per game) and yards gained (391.2 per game) among all coach-team combos with at least five seasons together.
