How Did Sean and Beth Meet?

Beth Shuey is the ex-wife of NFL coach Sean Payton. Shuey was born in Morocco, Indiana, and attended Indiana State University. In 1990, Sean Payton joined the university as a running back and wide receivers coach. During this time, Beth met Sean, and the two began dating. After being in a relationship for some time, Sean and Beth tied the knot on July 11, 1992. They welcomed a daughter named Meghan in 1997. The couple’s son, Connor, was born in 2000.

Beth and Sean remained married for almost two decades, and the family relocated to Mandeville, Louisiana, after Sean joined the New Orleans Saints as their head coach. In the midst of the Bountygate scandal that altered the course of Sean’s life, Beth and Sean decided to part ways as husband and wife. In June 2012, shortly before their 20th marriage anniversary, the couple filed for divorce at a court in Tarrant County, Texas. The petition for divorce read, “discord or conflict of personalities between Petitioner and Respondent that destroys the legitimate ends of the marriage relationship and prevents any reasonable expectation of reconciliation.”
