Three years after signing a four-year cash-and-carry deal with the Dolphins to run the team’s football operations, Bill Parcells carried his cash out of Miami and returned to ESPN.
Now that the Saints are considering bringing Parcells out of retirement once again to serve as interim head coach during Sean Payton’s suspension, a league source tells PFT that the Saints aren’t the only team that reached out to Parcells regarding a possible 2012 return.
Though the total number and names of the teams isn’t known, don’t rule out the franchise currently owned by a guy who was a devout Giants fan during Parcells’ heyday in New York. A guy who once chased Lawrence Taylor into a bathroom for an autograph.
It’s still not known whether the 70-year-old Parcells will get back into the game, or in what capacity. But it’s no surprise that the man who has declared on multiple prior occasions that he’s done with the NFL may not be.
