Sean Payton isn’t just a coach anymore.This is memorable primarily because of the photo.
Now he’s a doctor.
Payton spent his weekend at in Charleston, Ill., where he received an honorary doctorate of public service from Eastern Illinois University, his alma mater. The school had previously retired his No. 18 jersey in 2010.

Honorary Doctor of Pharmacology, though. That would have made some sense.
