Parcells NOT going to ATL, Going MIA?

December 19, 2007

Parcells turns down Atlanta… and is considering Miami?!

Bill Parcells has pulled an about face, backing out of a deal with the Atlanta Falcons to potentially join the Dolphins front office.

After reaching an agreement in principle to become executive vice president of the Falcons on Tuesday, Parcells informed the Falcons today that he was considering a revised offer from the Dolphins.

“We met with him this morning to complete the contract. At that time, we were made aware by Parcells that he was considering a revised offer from the Miami Dolphins. He later informed us that he would not be signing a contract with us,” team owner Arthur Black said in a statement.

Last week a Dolphins source confirmed there was interest in Parcells, but did not disclose the extent of conversations or the role he would play with the team, which won its first game of the season Sunday.

The Dolphins presently have a first-year coach in Cam Cameron. This summer the Dolphins extended the contract of General Manager Randy Mueller, and it’s uncertain what his role would be with the organization if Parcells were hired.

So… considering Miami for what?
