Early jobs

In 2000, Sean Payton was promoted to the role of offensive coordinator for the Giants. During the 2002 season, after several poor showings by the Giants' offense, Payton's role in play-calling was taken over by then head-coach Jim Fassel; under Fassel the offense improved and propelled the team to a wild-card playoff berth. While Payton was still ostensibly in charge of the offense, his role in the team was clearly diminished and had he not been hired away by the Cowboys, he would have likely been fired. Jim Fassel is the former head coach of the New York Giants of the NFL and currently is the Offensive Coordinator of the Baltimore Ravens. ...


Payton joined Bill Parcells and the Cowboys as assistant head coach and quarterbacks coach in 2003, where he helped coach Quincy Carter, Vinny Testaverde, and Drew Bledsoe to 3000-yard seasons.
