There is a catch for both L.A. and Arizona though - Payton, although not coaching, is still technically under contract by the Saints.
Payton has previously said that he would be happy to return to coaching next season, "if the right situation presented itself."
Payton resigned as the Saints head coach in January, stating that coaching was "not where my heart is right now."

"And I'll be honest with you, that might be coaching again at some point."
Payton began his career as a head coach with the Saints in 2006 after serving as an assistant coach to several other teams in the league.
Just four years later, he would guide New Orleans to the team's first Super Bowl victory with a win over the Indianapolis Colts.
