It’s not as though we’ve never heard this before, but Bill Parcells said recently that he had no interest in returning to the NFL after stepping down from his post as executive vice president of football operations for the Miami Dolphins last season. "I'm done," Parcells said in a recent conference call for the New England Patriots Hall of Fame, per the Dallas Morning News.
Parcells has retired three times before--once after the 1990 season (with the New York Giants), once after the 2000 season (which he spent with the Jets, as general manager) and again in 2006, after four seasons with the Cowboys.
In Dallas, Parcells went 34-30, but was unable to find playoff success. For his career as a head coach, Parcells is 172-130. But after his latest front office gig, Parcells insists that, this time, the retirement will stick.
"I know I've said that before. You better put it down in pencil," Parcells said. "But my full intention is that I'm going to be 70 years old in August and I'm enjoying my time now ... I still have a lot of things I'd like to try to do, but I think I'm going to leave the NFL to someone else now."
