While the Saints will undergo a lot of roster turnover, they won’t deal with any problems on the coaching side.

That’s the beauty of having an offensive-minded head coach, but even beyond then, only quarterbacks Joe Lombardi and tight ends coach Dan Campbell will need to be replaced.

While those are certainly losses, having Payton and offensive coordinator Pete Carmichael continuing to run the show should make the process smooth for Winston, should he return.

Who the next quarterback coach is important for Winston’s development, though Payton will be in charge of that.

If this doesn’t clearly support why teams should hire an offensive-minded head coach, I don’t know what it is- doing so is how you build a consistently productive offense.
