The deal is all but official, Bill Parcells will join the Miami Dolphins soon.
According to new reports in regards to the Parcells decision to reject the Atlanta Falcons job, the Miami Dolphins owner Wayne Huizenga called Bill this morning as he was set to accept the deal with Arthur Blank to serve as the VP of Operations. Shortly after Parcells revealed that he was considering the Phins offer, he rejected the Falcons deal and flew to Miami.
Miami reportedly was seeking Parcells for a unspecified position with the team, thought to be a GM. It now appears that Parcells will sit in a higher position.
No longer a rumor, Bill Parcells is negotiating with Miami and should have a new job with the Dolphins within hours.
UPDATE: According to ESPN, the phone call from Wayne this morning informed Bill that the Dolphins no longer were up for sale and that the position would be the VP position. Bill and Wayne have known each other for a long time and consider each other friends.
