Sean Payton has already been linked to multiple head coaching jobs since he stepped down from that role with the New Orleans Saints less than four months ago, but one team insists they will not be in the mix.

Michael McCarthy of Front Office Sports reported this week that the Carolina Panthers want to hire Payton and will attempt to do so next season. The Panthers felt the need to address the rumor.

“We would not talk to — or consider — a coach who’s under contract with another team,” the Panthers said in a statement, via Pro Football Talk.

The official response is interesting for a couple of reasons. For starters, McCarthy typically only has sports media scoops. A lot of people already would have been skeptical about his information, so it is somewhat surprising that Carolina addressed it. Also, the Panthers chose to focus on how they would not tamper with a coach who is under contract with another team rather than simply stating that they already have a head coach in Matt Rhule.

All indications are that Rhule will likely be fired if the Panthers do not show serious signs of improvement next season. Payton appears to be focused on TV gigs for the time being. Even if he wants to return to coaching next season, the Panthers probably would not be his top choice.
