Bill Parcells walked away from the Miami Dolphins a week before the season was to start. He spent the year taking Stephen Ross‘ money and even reportedly considered helping out another team in their head coach search. Now, as fans, well many fans, have come to agree with his departure and hope that he won’t return any time soon, the soon part is out the window.
Bill Parcells is back. Sort of.
Parcells was part of the group that consisted of Jeff Ireland and Tony Sparano who sat down and talked with QB Andy Dalton of TCU. At least according to his father he was quoted as saying this to a local paper:
“Really, this week is the first chance that NFL teams have to talk to you as a player,”Greg Dalton, Andy’s father, said of the Senior Bowl. “He met with the Miami Dolphins coach and general manager and Bill Parcells, Pete Carroll and the Seattle staff, andJason Garrett of the Cowboys. Parcells has developed a criteria for drafting quarterbacks. The height was fine, and he has to put on a few pounds.”
So now Parcells appears to be back “advising” now that the season is over and the draft is in view. Great. Has anyone forgotten just how awful Parcells is with QB evaluations? At least he isn’t scouting WR’s.
