Saints News, 11/10/15: Payton Shoots Down Talk of Coaching & Personel Changes

From Mike Triplett: “At some point, you’re like, ‘Well, did you do a good enough job teaching the subject matter?’” Payton said. However, Payton quickly shot down a question asking if he might consider replacing any of those coaches, saying, “That’s not for today’s (press conference) ...” Payton similarly shot down a question when asked if he might consider personnel changes for repeat offenders -- specifically when it came to recurring penalties in the secondary. “We’re not talking about personnel changes. We’re talking about just the fundamentals,” Payton said.
