The New Orleans Saints announced on Monday that the team, and head coach Sean Payton have agreed to a multi-year contract extension.

In 2006, in Payton's first season at the helm, the Saints reached the NFC Championship game for the first time in team history.

Payton helped the team achieve another first in 2009, guiding the Saints to a Super Bowl win over the Indianapolis Colts.
