According to Ryan Jones of the New Orleans Times-Picayune,  Saints head coach Sean Payton has filed for divorce from his wife Beth.

The divorce papers indicate that they are splitting due to “discord or conflict of personalities between Petitioner and Respondent that destroys the legitimate ends of the marriage relationship and prevents any reasonable expectation of reconciliation.”

The papers also indicate that Payton has already moved out of his Dallas area home, where his wife and two kids currently reside.

They always say it’s hard to be an NFL head coach and be married because of how much time is spent away from home.  Many coaches sleep at the team facility and not go home for days.  I’m not sure how many women are willing to put up with that.  I’m also sure the Saints bounty scandal hasn’t help the Payton family now that he’s out of work for an entire year.
