Should Bill Parcells Coach the Saints?

Head coach Sean Payton may be suspended for a whole season due to the New Orleans Saints bounty scandal that rocked the NFL, but that hasn't stopped him from making football decisions for his team -- or stopped him from at least trying. According to multiple reports, Payton has contacted his mentor, Pro Football Hall of Fame finalist and legendary head coach Bill Parcells about coaching the Saints.

Parcells last coached the Dallas Cowboys in 2006. He became an executive for the Miami Dolphins shortly thereafter and helped turn the franchise around before new ownership erased their progress. Parcells is a two-time Super Bowl Champion, winning as head coach of the New York Giants in 1986 and 1990. He also took the New England Patriots to the Super Bowl in 1997 and the New York Jets to the AFC Championship Game in 1998.

On top of all those accomplishments, he's mentored Super Bowl winning coaches Payton, Tom Coughlin, and Bill Belichick. Everywhere Parcells has gone, the team has become better, even if he never stuck around too long, much like Larry Brown in the NBA. But will Parcells be willing to coach again at age 70, especially for only one season, assuming Payton is brought back in 2013? With franchise quarterback Drew Brees still unsigned, the Saints are in desperation mode post-BountyGate. Is Bill Parcells their man?

    I would love to see Parcells jump in and take the helm of the embattled Saints. It would be another great story line for the upcoming season. Having said that I don't think he will do it. We'll see...

    Yes Sean Payton was the offensive coordinator here. When he went to New Orleans, that left the door open for Jason Garrett.
