Sean Payton could be right back in the thick of playoff success is Tom Coughlin does indeed resign as head coach of the Giants.
Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com reports that New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton would be “very interested” in the Giants job if it became available.

The Saints would want compensation for Payton, who is under contract through 2017 — but a long-list of teams would likely inquire.
