Sean Payton made his first public remarks since being reinstated from his season-long suspension, saying he wished he had managed his coaching staff better and that he has no desire to speak with former defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, the Associated Press reports.
The New Orleans Saints coach returned to work Wednesday a day after his suspension for his role in the team's bounty program was lifted, watching Senior Bowl practice, he planned to meet later in the day with the staff to evaluate a defense that struggled.
"There's certain things that, you know, as you have a chance to look back on it that I would want to look back on differently and I would want to handle differently, with the challenges of managing a staff," Payton said.
Williams was suspended indefinitely by the NFL for masterminding the team's bounty program with the team during the 2009-11 seasons.
Payton said he met for 4½ hours with commissioner Roger Goodell on Monday and Williams' status was not discussed.
"I have no interest in talking to Gregg," he said.
