New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton, who has been suspended for the season for his part of the bounty scandal, has problems in his personal life too, as he has filed for divorce, the New Orleans Times Picayune reported Monday.

Payton filed for divorce from his wife, Beth, on June 14, according to the report.

The filings appear to have been written to hide the identities of the parties, referring to parties with initials: Sean Payton (PSP) and Beth Peyton (BAP). The petition includes the date the Paytons were married and the birthdates of the couple's two children.

The Paytons were scheduled to celebrate their 20th anniversary July 11.
