PFT-Paytonís in no hurry to hire a new defensive coordinator
 
Payton’s in no hurry to hire a new defensive coordinator | ProFootballTalk
With the 2013 hiring cycle nearing a conclusion, the Saints are just getting started in their search for a new defensive coordinator.

But coach Sean Payton isnít concerned about that. He says that the team will take its time in finding someone to run its new 3-4 defense.

ďThis oneís different because of the timing and because of the uniqueness of the situation. Thereís not any one candidate in mind,Ē Payton tells Mike Triplett of the New Orleans Times-Picayune. ďI know it appears to people that itís late in the process. But I donít think it is. Weíll be fairly patient, take our time in this decision. Obviously, itís going to involve philosophically a change, as well.

ďWeíre going to want to be deliberate, look at our league closely. And I wouldnít discount looking at the college game as well.Ē

Payton explained that the success of the 3-4 system has drawn him to it.

ďFor me and Mickey [Loomis] as well, some studies weíve done and just seeing some of these teams weekly and the two teams playing in the Super Bowl, just having to attack it. It presents issues in running game, presents protection issues. I just know coaching on offense what it does to you . . . really from my own experience, when we played against a 3-4 teams a handful of teams.Ē

Still, Payton didnít get to where he is without having a good plan. And thereís no reason to expose that plan publicly now, especially with teams like the Eagles still searching for a coordinator. Eventually, the Saints will make a hire ó and itíll likely be the guy they wanted all along.

But sooner than later, if possible, would be prudent.

I have to believe that he and Mickey already are in talks with their target.

Won't you need that DC to help evaluate players who might fit in with a 3-4?

Just askin'.

Not worried, Payton has a plan. You can believe that.

Don't let the deliberate talk fool you. He said the same exact thing last offseason then like a week or 2 later Spags was hired.

Someone was talking to a target after the Red Skins game.

You never know with Payton.
Now, go fire whoever scouts the large Universities defensive prospects.
