Parcells deal with Dolphins is for four years
Hank Goldberg of WQAM radio in Miami tells me that his sources say Dolphins owner Wayne Huizenga has agreed NOT to sell the Dolphins for the four years so he could land Parcells.
The Dolphins are expected to introduce Parcells before the end of this week, barring a last-minute glitch in negotiations.
Huizenga pulled into the Dolphins parking lot at about 4:45 ostensibly to speak with Coach Cam Cameron and General Manager Randy Mueller. Huizenga met with Cameron earlier today.
It is apparent Parcells is all but set to become the Dolphins vice president of football operations or a position similar in title to that that would give him control of the football team.
The Miami Herald story is on the website here: http://www.miamiherald.com/616/story/350561.html.
As I speculated in an earlier post, Parcells backed out of his negotiations with the Atlanta Falcons today. He is notorious for changing his mind on similar matters as he once agreed than changed his mind about coaching the Tampa Bay Bucs.
One source is saying the Dolphins originally wanted the Tuna as their general manager -- which is kind of lame considering the good job Mueller has done this year. But Parcells didn't want that job.
He apparently wants to hire a general manager and then the two will pool their opinions and pick a head coach -- which may or may not continue to be Cam Cameron.
