Of course, there is still your real family that the head coach must try to maintain as well in their schedule. Most coaches wives understand the grind that they are under but for some the pressure can be too much.
This could very well be the case with what happened in the Payton’s marriage with Sean being the “buck stops here” kind of head coach that he has been since arriving in New Orleans.
Along with the constant moving of his family and the reputation-shredding “bounty” investigation that hounded him for months, this could have very been the breaking point in an already strained relationship.
The constant speculation of why Payton was moving his family to Texas, the barrage of media, and his career put on hold for the next season only added to the crack that began to divide the marriage.
Both Payton and his wife have filed petitions in order to get what they feel is fair with their assets and also their two children. Although they tried to keep this divorce low-key, it’s now something else that will be blast across the airwaves and printed media.
