New Orleans Saints Fact of the Day for Saturday, January 18, 2014:

The New Orleans Saints hired Sean Payton as the team’s 14th head coach in team history eight years ago today.

Below are some notes and stats about Payton’s Saints tenure:

*Payton has posted a 73-39 regular season record and a 6-4 postseason mark, guiding the team to the postseason five times, to the NFC Championship game twice and the Super Bowl XLIV Championship.

*He’s the club’s lone head coach to open a season with 13 straight victories and post a 13-game winning streak and has the franchise’s top winning percentage (.652).

*Payton’s 40-16 (.714) home record and 33-23 (.589) mark away from the Mercedes-Benz Superdome are the club’s top winning percentages in both categories.

*In his first season in 2006, he took the Saints to the NFC Championship game and was named NFL Coach of the Year by most major outlets.

*The Saints are one of only two teams to finish in the top ten in net yards per game each season since 2006, including finishing fourth in 2013. The Saints also improved from 32nd in 2012 to fourth in 2013 in opponent net yards per game.
