Re: Bill Parcells has opt-out clause, could walk away from Dolphins

Don't know how legit it is, but there's a pretty hot rumor down at the Senior Bowl that now that the Dolphins' sale is official, Parcells is interested in taking his skills elsewhere.

Elsewhere as in out to Oakland and bringing in Todd Bowles to be his head coach.

Personally, I don't believe there's any way that happens. But who knows

Florio over at PFT suggested that it may be KC, and as a head coach, since Pioli (Parcells' son-in-law) just took the GM job out there. Interesting.

Yeah, I don't know about that. I mean why would Pioli take the job if he was going to then turn around and cede some control. I mean Pioli finally has what he always wanted, full control. I'd be surprised if he gave it up but I guess anything's possible.

I agree. In addition to what you mentioned, there would be the whole my son-in-law is my boss thing going on.

Parcells stays in charge.

Stephen Ross seals deal, now Miami Dolphins' majority owner - ESPN

Yeah but Parcells still isn't saying anything and he doesn't have to yet.

Exactly. His contract says he's got 30 days from today to simply take a $12M paycheck and leave, with ZERO strings attached to the Dolphins. Seems kind of silly not to, even though he's not exactly hurting for the money.

Parcells wouldnt want to come here.... we have too many aging veterans and not enough draft picks. we also have a meddling owner and I think Parcells had his fill of meddling owners when he coached Dallas.

I would like nothing more than for Parcells to come here in ANY capacity, but i just dont see any incentive for Parcells to do it - not when there are probably 20 other teams out there who are more "attractive."

For many of the reasons you state, that won't be taking place. AND, Parcells LOVES S. Florida.

Re: Bill Parcells has opt-out clause, could walk away from Dolphins

We can put this thread to bed, finally. SFRedskin provided a link from ESPN and here's one from SI saying that Ross spoke with Parcells and that Parcells intends to stay.

Stephen Ross buys ownership of Miami Dolphins from Wayne Huizenga - NFL - SI.com

Quote:
"Parcells is in charge," Ross said in a conference call. "He's staying, and I think we're very fortunate to have someone like Bill Parcells, who I think people have come to recognize as probably the best football mind in America."

The article is using a quote thats a couple days old (it was on PFT over the weekend) and the PFT/SportingNews quotes posted in this thread actually contain more recent information.

Parcells himself did not say definitively that he would be staying in Miami and was very clear that he hasnt made a decision yet. he has 30 days to make a decision so this story will likely continue for the remaining 30 days or until Parcells signs elsewhere or with a new contract in Miami.

SportingNews had an article today on this subject and i would be shocked if Parcells stays in Miami (without any new money on his contract, at least).

Best football mind. Whatever. He is a fool if he leaves that kind of free money. Miami, give me a break. Leave 12 millon on the table, sound like he's lost his mind. He did school Vinny; but how hard is that.

I think it shows his character. His dedication to his goal. And his class. That's part of what makes him the best. IMO

This is just stupied to even start a thread about this because ther is not one good coach or front office guys that would ever give this team a second thought. Lets put this one to rest.
Nothing in the thread's title is suggesting that Parcells should come to Washington. It was people's opinion that brought that up. If you are that pissed off at Snyder, then stop being a fan of the Redskins. Like it or not, he's the owner and there isn't a damn thing we can do about it.
