New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton is not going anywhere, despite earlier reports today that his 2011 contract extension was voided by the NFL.

Sean Payton spoke with FOX's Jay Glazer earlier today to discuss recent reports that the NFL had voided his 2011 contract extension and told Glazer he has no plans of going anywhere else.

"I absolutely plan on being a New Orleans Saint."

Payton will need a new contract, however, and could now become the highest paid coach in the NFL.
