Southern Tuna! Parcells to Join Atlanta Falcons
From the NY Daily News:
Bill Parcells, who once again has the desire to get back into the NFL, told the Daily News this morning he is on the verge of accepting a job to run the Atlanta Falcons football operation with only a few minor details to be worked out.
Parcells plans to hire a general manager and then work with the GM to hire a new coach to replace Bobby Petrino, who quit last week 13 games into his first season to coach at Arkansas. Parcells has candidates in mind for each job, but didn’t want to reveal their names. He thought current team president and GM Rich McKay would stay with the team to handle league business…..
“I’m going to oversee the football operation, Parcells said. “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.
“Under no circumstances is Bill Parcells ever going to return to the field.”
