Parcells, Dolphins reach deal

    Bill Parcells will not be joining the Atlanta Falcons as head of football operations and has instead agreed to a four-year contract to join the Dolphins in that capacity, The Miami Herald reported Wednesday.

    The Herald, citing a source, said Dolphins owner Wayne Huizenga was at the team's training facility for an hour, where he spoke with head coach Cam Cameron.

    The immediate futures of Cameron and general manager Randy Mueller are currently unknown, the report said.
    The Dolphins declined comment, only saying no contract has been signed, and no one at Huizenga's business office was authorized to comment when reached Wednesday evening by The Associated Press.
    Miami's players were also caught off-stride by the news, which broke after they finished practice. "I don't know anything," defensive end Jason Taylor said.

    So, for the second time in less than a week, an off-field story is dominating the conversation at Miami's training complex.
    The first revelation came last Friday: Huizenga has been in talks about selling the team to two real estate developers for about $1.1 billion. Huizenga later said those discussions had been going on for months, and the story has since changed to the billionaire owner considering selling only a 49 percent stake in the team.
    And now this: Parcells, who previously coached the Giants, Patriots, Jets and Cowboys, is apparently set to return to the NFL. "Really?" defensive lineman Vonnie Holliday said when told by The AP about Parcells' apparent interest in the Dolphins. "You can't control it. But somebody like the Big Tuna, regardless of who's in the front office or who's not, brings a lot of respect and a lot of credibility with him. He's a Hall of Famer. If you're a free agent out there, that might draw you in."

    Let's wait and see if any more can go wrong for Parcells after getting his mitts on the Fish. He's starting from scratch, from a lower point than any other of his previous teams. Cam and his staff can't be feeling too spiffy right now. Huizinga wants to sell. Scouting will be a mess and Parcells is gettting a late start. If he brings in a new coaching staff, new scouts and new players it will take years. May take that anyway and I'm not sure Parcells has the patience. He won't have his customary say on the field. He's going to be a office schlub with his pud in his hand. The Fish are more than a few players away. Theirs is a roster in which no player could start on a number of teams in this league and the majority would have problems starting on all but a handful of teams. Is Bill suited to what is essentially and expansion team? Now we find out.

    No they did not.

    Do not believe the LIES the media is trying to portray or even some of our own posters.

    Parcells NEVER signed a contract.

    If he had signed and then said FU, then yes I would agree but he did not.

    Parcells got a better deal.

    Good for him.

    There is no way that Cameron stays on as head coach.



    No way.

    Agree. Parcells has been in the league a long time as a successful head coach and he has people he is going to want to bring in and not knowing much about cam, the W-L record will make it easy for him to clean house.

    Cam has strong ties to Bobby Knight who Parcels respects a great deal so from what I have read it isn't a 100% lock that Cam is gone. We shall see.

    I'm not a fan of Parcells at all, and I don't know if I like this move by the Dolphins. I think that there is a good chance that Cam is let go, which leads to this question, would you bring Cam back as offensive coordinator?

    Not a Parcells fan either, & I don't think that he has the patience to take a team this far in the tank back to respectability. This is not a good move for the fish, IMO. :no:

    After our victory over the Fins in that Epic playoff game, that piece of **** Shula basically came out in his post game interview and said, The BEST team lost today and every since that day I hate them worse than any other team.
