Parcells deal with Dolphins is for four years

The Bill Parcells deal is done. It is for four years according to a source.

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.

MORE TO COME ...

So what does this mean for Mueller? I think the addition of Parcells would be great in that capacity, he just doesen't belong on the field anymore. But I look for this to cause more bark than bite as bad as Parcels has been in changing his mind, it can cause what staff Miami has in place to jump ship.

Thats great news in my eyes. the BIG tuna has built a great football team everytime he has the opportunity. GIANTS, NEW ENGLAND, JETS, and the COWBOYS... I am sure he has enough magic left to get the dolphins back on the top.
I am sure of one thing , he is better then the current guy in charge !!!!!!!!!!!
TUNA is a great ENERGY FOOD for dolphins !!!!

They should have went after Parcells a couple of years ago; instead they picked Nick "stab-u-in-the-back" Saban. I think Cameron deserves one more year. Will a Parcells run football operation stick with Cameron? Maybe not.

Who cares if he leaves in 3 years? His job is to laydown the blueprint for success in the front office and improve our talent scouting and player development. After 3 years, this should all be in place and we should no longer require his participation in the day to day decisions.

To all you people who think Parcells was so instrumental in making Dallas a play-off team, here's an article from PFT. See the 2nd paragraph:

"TUNA GOING IRISH?

There's talk in league circles that Bill Parcells plans to pursue Cowboys V.P. of college and pro scouting Jeff Ireland to become the next General Manager of the Atlanta Falcons.

Ireland was Parcells' right-hand man in Dallas, and word is that Parcells actually let him run the draft (subject to the periodic involvement of owner/G.M. Jerry Jones).

Ireland is well respected, but largely unknown because he seeks no attention or notoriety.

The pursuit of Ireland could get sticky. Per league rules, Ireland is free to leave only if his contract has expired or if he's getting "final say" authority. Parcells could take the position that "final say" will be delegated to Ireland, but we're not sure anyone will believe it."

He has no interest in being GM, so the dolphins revised their offer, and that is why he's now interested.

I believe we should all be thankfull he may be coming in this position and not head coach, that would be a disaster. As V.P. of operations he has the knowledge and eye for talent to turn this team around in two years.
But first the nickname "Big Tuna" must go, we must welcome the "Big Phin"
I believe he would keep Cam, but properly tutor him on how to coach.
Green gone--McNabb in, the experience would be an immediate plus, and give Beck and Lemon the tutor they never had. Brown and Ricky would stay along with the newly drafted McFadden, the rest would be on the tradeing block.

Um, excuse me. The *good* job Mueller has done? You mean drafting an unpolished WR with the ninth overall pick? Giving Joey Porter $20 mil in guaranteed money? Trading for Trent Green? Not tendering Welker at first round value? Doing nothing to address the defensive backfield? Depleting the D-line depth by cutting Kevin Carter? Depleting the special teams by letting Bowens, Minor, Morris and Donnie Jones walk?

It is truly baffling how much you and your brethren in the South Florida media constantly puff up Mueller. It's absurd. One look at his track record will tell you he's a mediocrity at best as a GM and talent evaluator.

I think this could be good for Mueller and bad for Cam.

Mueller is well-known throughout the league and I'd be willing to bet Parcells sticks with him as GM. Also expect to see CC offered the Offensive Coordinator spot and then a new head coach brought in.

I think this also means Dorsey is the #1 pick in the draft. Parcells usually builds through a strong defense first and likes the "bigguns" up front.

So, who did he draft that is any good?

Parcells is just another egomaniac that will only further disrupt this team! His specialty is to come into a situation with a team flat on its rear-end. Then he makes a splash with some high draft picks. But when you get right down to it,his coaching career has been mediocre at best without Belichick as his Defensive coordinator. Tuna is NOT the answer

Anonymous Anonymous said...

I think Billy will give Cam another chance. He should..His first season as a coach:

"When Parcells took over in 1983, the New York Giants were a team that had posted just one winning season in the previous ten years. In his first year, he made a controversial decision to bench Phil Simms in favor of Scott Brunner. The result was a disastrous 3-12-1 season during which the Giants seriously considered bringing in University of Miami head coach Howard Schnellenberger to replace Parcells"

If Bill really wanted to go out and start fresh with coaching staff Atlanta was definitely his choice. I don't think he wants to do that.

I was for keeping Mueller and Cam unless Bill or perhaps Cowher could be had. I hope those guys stick around anyways and fall in line with Parcells. Also, whoever wants McFadden and Brown isn't thinking straight...why tie up that much cap space on RB, which is the easiest position in the NFL to find cheap, capable replacements? Also, assuming Brown returns healthy, it's the one position on the team that doesn't need to be addressed...........TRADE DOWN...replenish the Defense.

Damn Christmas came early. I have been calling for it all season and my wish comes true. Since probably about week two I have been predicting exactly how this season was going to turn out and the total ineptness of Cam and too a lesser degree Mueller. I have also been vehemently calling for a true football mind to run operations. My exact words were for Bill Parcells one of the most astute evaluators of talent in the league. Lo and behold wishes do come true. For this I will take back all my negative comments about Huzienga and praise him for reading this blog and taking my advice lol. The hiring of Parcells will mean that our upcoming high draft picks will be wisely used. This also means that if Jerry Jones truly wants McFadden with the #1 pick it will be easier to trade down for multiple picks due to the relationship between Parcells and Jones. I also predict this is the end of the horrific Cam experiment. Bill will prefer a firm disclipinarian coach wich is definitely not Cam. I would also assume that it will be a defensive minded coach. In the end I figure this does not bode well for Cam, Capers, Murlakey, Armstrong, possibly Mueller, (though stripped down he does not make a good puppet) and most of the scouts. In my opinion these are all good things. This team is broken and needs to be completely overhauled from the ground up. Parcells is the man to do this and do it right. He will do it right by building through the draft and not wasting money on expensive old free agents. This will take time but will end up building a franchise that can sustain winning seasons for many years. The only concern is Parcells losing interest and quitting before the end of his four year contract. I doubt that because Parcells at least usually gives three years to a project and has wanted to be a VP for some time now. It will be new and fresh to him and he wont burn out from the long hours that coaching entails. Buck up my fellow dolfans a new era is upon us and though it might take time good things are definitely coming. I for one am excited and you will here no more complaining from me as I put my trust in the knowledge of the big tuna as compared to the buffoons we currently have. Bring on the draft baby!!!

Keep Cam he's a good coach. Landry started out 0-11-1. Chuck Noll only had a win or two. Bill Walsh was 2-14 his first year. Cut Cam some slack he has a team short on talent, and decimated by injuries. Randy's draft was solid, and that is what you want. We need several solid drafts in a row. I love the addition of the Tuna, but keep Cam and Randy. You can never have too many GOOD football minds!

I disagree. Parcells is way too domineering to want a coach that will clash heads with him. Also, Parcells is defensive-minded so he would probably want an offensive-minded coach to balance. Just my opinion.

I believe, as someone else posted, Parcells, who loves defense, will definitely draft Dorsey with the first pick. Parcells will clear out the non-football talent and get players that play to win and that's a refreshing thought....also, Parcells is respected league-wide and this may attract all those FA's we just miss picking up!!!

Parcells is a self-serving, egomaniacal, miserable jerk who last coached a championship team seventeen years ago. He WILL someday bail on the Dolphins as he's bailed everywhere else. BUT, his main talent seems to be having the ability to take control of a wayward franchise & at least give it a nudge in the right direction. I never could stand the guy & I've always felt he was vastly overrated as a coach. But if he can come in & give the Fins a similar nudge in the right direction, well, that's a risk worth taking at this point in my opinion. A nudge in ANY direction is an improvement over their current course, no?

Mr. Brigadier Pudding needs to take more than 'one look' at his track record. Mueller's previous track record with different teams is very similar to Parcells. All teams were improved, still have good players that he brought in and he has drafted several all-pro's. I'll give him Porter but only for the money, I'm still glad we have him. Personally I'd rather have Satele than Welker not to mention Abraham Wright. If all the other guys he listed were still on the Dolphins, they would still suck and they would have much less cap room to work with this off season. Mueller was smart to get rid of them. All bloggers that criticize the cutting of overpriced veterans need to look up 'rebuilding' in the dictionary.

Mando; I have to agree with Major Pudding on this one. Mueller is brain-less. Ginn is talented but NOT #9 talented. Especially when we needed a QB and OL. Beck; well the jury is still out on him. I cannot fairly grade him because the OL is pathetic and he had his hands tied by Cam (why, I don't know). The Porter deal looked great in May but is proving to be a bust in December. I'm sorry but Mueller needs to go.

I am thrilled to have a football genius take the reins in Miami. He has turned arround every "project franchise" he has joined. His success speaks for itself. I am not very concerned with his level of commitment because he is doing the right thing by distancing himself from the sideline a(by turning down GM and not wanting to coach).

Wayne FINALLY made a good football move here. We will be a playoff team by the end of this decade

This is not good news. Parcells is guaranteed to leave bitter in a couple of years and we'll be starting over. This season's problems were due to way beyond normal extensive injuries and big changes in the coaching staff. Parcells, is completely unproven at this position, he is old, tired and endears himself to nobody. My guess is that it is the wrong call. More change, more going nowhere. This team needs stabiliy, not someone who is going to huff and puff and leave us cold in 2 to 3 years.

For those of you saying Cam will be demoted to OC...you're complete idiots. What the Tuan will do with Cam remains to be seen, but if you think a guy is going from HC to OC...you're cluelees. Completely clueless. Jim Bates anyone? NO coach is going to take that demotion at the same organization...unless he was a interim...and even then it is highly unlikely.

I'll bet $100 Cam isn't going anywhere. He'll have at least one more year. Any takers?

Mueller has done a solid job in the ONE year HE was picking the players. I'm SO tired of you morons bashing Ginn for Cam making his family comments about him. I'm tired of you morons bashing Ginn and saying he's a bust when we've been so unsettled at QB. The guy has skills you CAN'T teach. I have yet to see him drop an easy ball. He's had three return TD's with two called back on poor holding calls. If the kid were playing at Indy or the Patsies with good QB play...he'd be a stud. It is COMPLETELY unfair to judge him now...based on being a rook and having poor QB play.

It amazes me how many of you think a GM should hit on EVERY draft pick. Which makes that group of you clueless. Mueller had a solid draft. Period. He needs more time.

Most of these bloggers think you can make a winner in one season, get the right coach, draft this guy, get that guy, pick up someone in free agency... Doesn't work that way. Look around at any of the good times today and you will see there were years of rebuilding that led up to that. Miami's problem is that it never took time to rebuild, it just keeps trying endlessly with the quick fix routine. Doesn't work that way, never has, never will.

I wrote before that constant change = constant failure.

Look at what we've gone through...Jimmy Johnson, Wanstache, Dan Marino, who was on the job for what, 17 days?, Rick (yechh) Spielman, Jim Bates, Nick (Satan) Saban. We've got NOTHING to show for it. Nada, zip.

I don't know right now if I'm for or against the hiring of Bill Parcells. I think it will all depend on how much "disruption" he causes.

Its important that he come in and help evaluate talent that is currently on the team, available in free-agency, and whats available in the draft.

If he comes in and starts hiring and firing at will, then we're sunk for at least another year.

Also, his deal is for four years. Who wants to start a pool on how long he'll really last.

Look, I'm an optimist, if he can come in and help improve our team dramatically, then I'm all for it. If he's going to come in and act like a bull in a china shop and put us in a worse situation, then I'm obviously against it. I just don't want things to become a circus, because with the hiring of Parcells, the Miami Dolphins have now moved up in "media importance," that is, the magnifying glass will be upon us AGAIN.

The good news out of all this is that at least we know the team is NOT being sold. What a bunch of hot air that all was. Lots of newsprint wasted on that story!

The old saying goes, "be careful what you wish for, because you just might get it." Well, we got it. Now what?

JinVa there is no way Parcells is going to keep CamMoron. Mark my words, time will again prove me right. Also great article by Dan Le Batard today. I agree that people shouldnt get overly excited and expect a Super Bowl. However, some sense of direction is better than the completely unorganized mess that currently exists. Unlike Batard I do feel that Parcells will excel in this job capacity. Will it bring the fins a Super Bowl? Maybe not, but I guarantee within at least two years the Dolphins will be relevant again. The only thing I hope is that Parcells drafts another QB and doesnt bring in another veteran band-aid ala Chad Pennington or Donovan McNabb. Keep drafting young QB's one will eventually work out(see Cleveland). Although I wouldnt waste a first round draft pick on this years batch. A second round choice or a late round sleeper. So good to start thinking about building fast forward instead of failing fast forward and thank God no more drafting of families.

For all those that hate Randy, when was the last time the Phins have had as good a draft as the last (and Randy's first) one? When was the last time we came into a draft (2008) with the number of picks and cap space we have now? This is how you do it...no quick fix. This is how the Patsies have been doing it.

"Keep drafting young QB's one will eventually work out(see Cleveland)."

I assume you're referring to Derek Anderson who was ACTUALLY drafted by Baltimore in the 6th RD. and waived.

Garrett has tools,a decent QB,a very good OL,TWO good healthy RB's,a great TE,a very good receiving corps,at Dallas and it would take an absolute MORON to make them look bad much like Cams situation at SD or Norv's weapons in Dallas or Moore in Indy or Walsh in SF and the list goes on and on and on and on and on!

The one constant ALL these examples have in common is GOOD to GREAT PLAYERS.

To have such a high opinion of yourself you certainly are a DUMBA$$!

I think we need to give Mr H the benefit of the doubt. At least the man is attempting to make this team better. I would be pretty upset to see an owner that didn't care and do nothing. This team is in bad shape at least Mr H is attempting to change that. The man is not a quitter.

This deal seems to be a good thing to me. Either way though, letting this horrible disaster in Miami continue would be a great injustice to the Dolphins. I have never seen any group destroy an organization in such a thorough way that Huizenga's group has done with the Dolphins. One collassal mistake after another. I liked Huizenga's last idea better. Sell the team and find someone else's life to ruin. But hiring Parcells has got to be better than letting a couple of dimwits trade our only decent receivers, trade one elder qb for another, and draft a player in a position you are already strong in with the first draft pick. I was even a Cam Cameron fan, until this bs. But I do like his later draft picks. He did a nice job after one and two. But how can you screw up one and two.

Great move by Wayne Huizenga. Can't wait to see what happens in the draft. I can see Bill Parcells trading down and draft the kid out of Auburn, Quentin Groves. He can be the type of player like DeMarcus Ware. He is the same size as him and could be used as a DE or a LB. Also could take a QB in the other rounds like a Chad Henne. Definitely waiting to see the talent he brings in.
