Post Parcells leaving the Dolphins?

Quote:
ESPN’s Chris Mortensen dropped a major bombshell during the 11:00 a.m. EST hour of Sunday NFL Countdown.

Dolphins V.P. of football operations Bill Parcells could be leaving the team after the current season.

Per Mortensen, Parcells’ contract with the Fins includes an “iron-clad” provision allowing Parcells to receive the balance of his pay and walk away if/when owner Wayne Huizenga surrenders control of the team.

And since Huizenga is in the process of selling the team to Stephen Ross, that day could be coming soon. Per Mortensen, Parcells will have 30 days to exercise his option to walk away, with pay, once Ross finalizes his purchase of a controlling interest in the team.

So, in other words, Parcells would get $12 million for one year of work, and the ability to work his magic as soon as 2009 in another city.

Mort identifies the Jets, Browns, Lions, and Raiders as teams with which Parcells could land. But Mort cautions that Parcells would not want to interfere with any opportunities that his son-in-law, Pats V.P. of player personnel Scott Pioli, might have in cities like Cleveland or Detroit.

And here’s the most important thing to keep in mind about this report. Mortensen’s source undoubtedly was Parcells himself, given that the two men worked together in 2007 at ESPN, where they co-hosted a Friday night radio show. So this is likely getting out now because Parcells wants it to get out now, which means that he’s thinking about walking away with the money and looking for another team in which he can try to turn things around.

Presumably by raiding the Fins’ front office and coaching staff.

He has already made them contenders so I guess it wouldn't be that big of a shock. I like Parcells as a football guy and he obviously knows what it takes to turn a franchise around. If he leaves, who ever gets him will be a lucky organization. Hopefully it will be in the NFC and the Lions.

He turned a 1 win team to a playoff contender in 1 season, so imagine what he could do with a middle of the road team? *coughTexanscough*

I was thinking the same thing...now get out of my head and don't touch the harem in my subconscious on your way out. Go on now. Git!

i think pretty much any fan would be envious of what Parcells can do for a team.
