Sat Dec 29, 5:26 AM UTC

(Reuters) - The New Orleans Saints are set to hand suspended head coach Sean Payton a five-year contract extension, the NFL reported on its website on Friday.

Payton is currently serving a season-long suspension for his role in the team's bounty program, which gave players cash rewards for knocking opponents out of games from 2009-2011.

New Orleans struggled without Payton at the helm this season and at 7-8 they will miss the playoffs for the first time since 2008.
