Parcells says he's done (probably)

Parcells Posted by Josh Katzowitz

While taking part in a media conference call this morning to talk about his nomination to the Patriots Hall of Fame, Bill Parcells was asked about whether he planned to return to the NFL at any point.

Not surprisingly, the answer was no. But before you mutter, “Yeah, we’ve heard that before” (because we have), Parcells already has beaten you to it.

I’m done. I know I’ve said that before, so you better put it down in pencil,” Parcells said. “My full intention is, I’m going to be 70 years old in August, and I’m enjoying my time now. I really left Miami about October 1 last year, and it is really the first time I’ve had any extended period of time to myself, and you get to do some things that I enjoy doing.

"I have a place in Saratoga, N.Y. that I like very much. And I’m currently speaking to you from Jupiter, Florida, which I’ve been here since in the mid-80s, and I love it here. So, it’s a good time for me. And fortunately, I’m in good health and feel good. I still have a lot of things that I’d like to try to do, but I think I’m going to leave the NFL somewhere else now.”

So, there you have it. Parcells is officially retired from the NFL. Unless, of course, he isn’t.

The man was a no-nonsense type of coach and will be missed! And to say he is a quitter is just false. The man does what he's hired to do and leaves. He comes in and cleans a team up and leaves. And he always leaves it in better shape than he found it... Enjoy your retirement Bill u earned it...

Bill Parcells has been a quitter since the day he left the Giants.  I was great once and then he became a quitter.  He hasn't finished anything that he started since the Giants.  Quitter.  End of story.

Bill Belichick has surpassed him, and Parcells hasn't done anything meaningful for years.

Surpassed him in cheating.

You took the time to actually comment and spend time in the thread. Obviously, you cared enough to do that. I say, enjoy the retirement Bill. Thanks for being passionate about the game of football.

Seriously, though?  Who cares?  Bill Belichick has surpassed him, and Parcells hasn't done anything meaningful for years.   Glad he's wealthy and healthy, but he shafted his family to become so, so spend some time with them and make way for fresh blood.
