Minutes ago on ESPN's airing of the 2011 NFL Draft, New Orleans Saints' head coach Sean Payton was interviewed  by John Gruden and Chris Berman.

Last night after the Saints drafted Mark Ingram, Reggie Bush tweeted "It's been fun New Orleans". Many reports then came out saying that Reggie Bush will be playing else where in 2011, if there is a season.

The interview started with Coach Payton's thoughts on drafting their new running back, Heisman Trophy winner and Alabama alum, Mark Ingram. Sean seemed thrilled with drafting the former Crimson Tide running back and stated that Ingram will be used to carry the ball up the field.

Chris Berman then asked Sean Payton what is going to happen with Reggie Bush. Will he play in the Big Easy next season or will Reggie leave the Saints? Sean Payton immediately responded by saying that he met with Reggie Bush this morning.

He started off by saying he had the same conversation with Reggie as he had five years ago with Duece McAllister after he drafted the former USC superstar. He explained that during these types of conversations, the players want to know what the head coach plans on doing with them in the regular season.

Payton explained to Chris Berman that he told Reggie that he plans on using him the exact same way that he has used him in the past. Payton then told Berman and the national viewers how different Reggie is compared to other running backs. He explained that Reggie is capable of doing things outside of the hash marks that other running backs can not do.

Sean Payton then told everyone that he honestly believes that Reggie Bush will be with the New Orleans Saints next season. 

So, you can believe all of the "experts" you want to. I, on the other hand, will listen to the head coach.
