A report from foxsports.com says the New Orleans Saints and coach Sean Payton have agreed to a new contract.

Rumors had been Payton might wind up as coach of the Dallas Cowboys if Jason Garrett were fired.  But Garrett is reported to be returning to Dallas and Payton should wind up as coach of the Saints for several more years, although terms of the contract are not known at this time.

Payton is 62-34 in six seasons with the Saints.
