That wouldn’t matter much if Payton stays, considering he has final say over all of the Saints’ personnel decisions anyway. Jeff Ireland, the former Dolphins general manager who’s now the assistant GM in New Orleans, would possibly take over the full-time GM duties if Payton remains as head coach. Payton and Ireland have worked with each other in the past.
But if Payton leaves, Loomis would likely be in charge of the coaching search. A top candidate to replace Payton is Doug Marrone, who’s a former assistant coach with the Saints and currently the offensive line coach in Jacksonville. Marrone opted out of his contract with the Buffalo Bills last year after just one season as the head coach.
