The Saints are getting a better coach as a one year stopgap, highly unlikely to lose any continuity between Parcells and Payton.
Payton gets a year off and can work for a network until his suspension is up.
Tell me how the whole thing isn't a slap in the face to the Commissioner?
Parcells would be no more than a figurehead. Payton was the offensive play caller. This is a huge disruption to the team. No way Payton makes $5.8mill in any other line of work from April 1 through the Super Bowl. If the Saints can hire Parcells more power to them
