Friendly coaches wager decides Saints uniforms vs. Eagles

Sean Payton and Doug Pederson battled it out on the links

 New Orleans Saints current and former players gather for the 26th Annual Saints Hall of Fame Celebrity Golf Classic in City Park on May 21, 2018.

At the NFL owners meetings in March, important decisions were being made in the conference rooms and at the tee.

New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton and Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson set out on the links and decided to make the round a little more interesting. In a recent conference call, Payton mentioned that the two head coaches had placed a friendly bet on which of their teams would get to wear their home color uniform during their Week 11 battle in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

A few holes later, Pederson came out on top and it was determined the Eagles would be wearing their traditional green jerseys when they visit New Orleans on November 18.

The two coaches will have the chance to face off again during the 29th Annual Century Championship Golf Tournament on July 13-15 in Lake Tahoe.
