According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Bill Parcells has packed up his office and has moved out of the Dolphins complex. Parcells apparently is still a consultant with the team, but he won’t be working from team headquarters any more and won't be involved in day-to-day decisions.
Miami knew this move was coming, but didn't realize Parcells' departure would happen so soon.
Many around the league expected Parcells to finish the season and then move on from the organization. The Dolphins must still pay Parcells the balance of the $12 million due to him under a four-year contract that expires after the 2011 season.
Heck of a deal by the Dolphins, by the way. Parcells can leave whenever he wants, and Miami still has to pay him. Where can I sign up for a deal like that?
