Without plans for the 2012-13 NFL season, New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Peyton has a lot of time on his hands. After being suspended without pay after the NFL’s investigation into the team’s bounty scandal, could Peyton be looking to get into television during his forced vacation?
Well this doesn’t sound like a long shot if FOX Sports has anything to do with it, by making him an analyst for the network’s NFL broadcasts.
Talk about ratings boost!
“Our feeling about Sean is that he’s bright, articulate and obviously contemporary,” said Lou D’Ermilio, FOX’s senior vice president for communications in a statement. “Any network with NFL rights would have to consider it.”
Now the NFL can’t prevent him from finding employment anywhere else, his suspension just outlines that he is not able to coach.
So FOX the door is wide open.
At Jersey Girl Sports, we are huge fans of the guys on the FOX NFL Sunday broadcast, and believe that Peyton would be a welcomed and exciting addition.
He needs something to do from now until February 2013.
