Well that was quick wasn’t it? Bill Parcells appears to be ready to leave ESPN and head back to Football. The ex-Cowboys coach and ESPN Analyst has been offered the Vice President position with the Atlanta Falcons and it looks like he’s going to accept the role.
“I think I probably will do it,” Parcells told the Daily News by telephone. “The job description is to be the football operations overseer. We still have a little work to do, but I don’t think it’s anything major. I don’t expect any real deal-breaker. I don’t think there will be any major hangups.”
Parcells told the newspaper that he will oversee the football operation but he has no plans to return to coaching.
“I’m going to oversee the football operation,” Parcells told the Daily News. “I’m going to hire a general manager if the deal is finalized in Atlanta. We are going to hire a coach and talk to all the coaches who are there. It’s going to be a collective effort. The triangle is going to be the GM, the coach and Bill Parcells. I’m also going to include Rich McKay if he wants to stay in the business.
Well I guess all you can say is good luck because that’s a tough spot to be in. I commend Parcells for taking such a challenging job and will miss him being the only person making sense on the Countdowns.
