After the Denver Broncos announced Sean Payton as their new head coach on Friday, team owner/CEO Greg Penner released the following statement:
Sean Payton is an outstanding leader and Super Bowl champion with a brilliant offensive mind. He shares our commitment to winning championships for Broncos Country and we’re excited to welcome him as our new head coach.Buy Broncos Tickets
Sean knows how to build a championship culture with high expectations. He coaches with intensity and attention-to-detail while setting and maintaining high standards. Sean pours his heart and soul into winning with preparation, creativity and a genuine love of the game.
It is rare in any sport to hire a head coach with Sean’s credentials and we appreciate the first-class manner in which the Saints approached this process. We also appreciated the opportunity to meet and learn from the other highly qualified, outstanding coaches we interviewed.
Our goal was to identify a strong leader for the Denver Broncos who is focused on winning, and we found him in Coach Payton.
Payton, 59, signed a five-year contract with the Broncos. He will meet the media at an introductory press conference at the team’s facility on Monday.
