Bill Parcells said he couldn’t have become the only coach to guide four different teams to the postseason without the backing of the owners of the New York Giants, New York Jets, New England Patriots and Dallas Cowboys.
Bill Parcells said his best performance during a 22-year National Football League coaching career might have been with an 8-8 New York Jets team, not his two Super Bowl-champion New York Giants squads.
Bill Parcells, who led the New York Giants to two Super Bowl titles and mentored coaches such as Tom Coughlin and Bill Belichick, was unfairly left out of the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s Class of 2012, former players said.
Sean Payton of the New Orleans Saints approached two-time Super Bowl champion Bill Parcells to discuss him becoming the team’s interim coach during Payton’s suspension for the National Football League season, according to ESPN.
Former New York Jets running back Curtis Martin’s election to the Pro Football Hall of Fame was “bittersweet” when his mentor, New York Giants coach Bill Parcells, who led the franchise to two championships, didn’t make it.
