It’s been a long hot summer, but now it’s time for the NFL regular season to get underway. If you haven’t read it yet, now would be a great time to pick up a copy of Home Team: Coaching the Saints and New Orleans Back to Life by Ellis Henican and Sean Payton.
The New Orleans Saints will kick off the NFL regular season on Thursday, September 9, when they host the Minnesota Vikings on NBC (7:30 p.m. CT) at the Louisiana Superdome.
LISTEN HERE as Ellis tells what it was like writing with Sean Payton, what the Saint’s Coach wanted this book to be about, and why Home Team is not like any other NFL coach’s book you’ve ever read. But this New York Times Best Seller is not only about football. Henican, a native of New Orleans, recounts the often emotional story of a coach and his team making it in a city that was making its own come-back in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
