Live blogging from chilly Foxboro today
Not likely to happen.
The real news is what is going on behind the scenes. Seems speculation that Bill Parcells is going to do this or that when he finally arrives on the Dolphins scene is running rampant. But let's be honest. Nobody knows for sure what is going to happen because even Parcells himself is not sure.
This much is certain: This weekend he talked to former Redskins and Texans general manager Charley Casserly and during that conversation, Casserly let Parcells know he would be interested in working for him in Miami. I don't know what Parcells' answered.
There is also much speculation that New England's Scott Pioli will be the next Miami GM. That is unlikely. The Patriots are not going to let him out of his contract and when Pioli does finally make a move, he'll want to go somewhere he's the No. 1 decision-maker. He would not be that in Miami. So the idea that Pioli is on the way because he's Parcells' son-in-law overplay the connection without considering business.
And as always, Dallas front office guy Jeff Ireland continues to be a consideration. One scenario I can tell you about is that Parcells does know and respect Randy Mueller and Mueller will have the chance to win Parcells over in the couple of months he will definitely work for him. Mueller is a good man, a fine personnel guy, so Parcells won't just dismiss him without considering him.
