Could Parcells leave the Dolphins?


On "NFL GameDay Morning," NFL Network insider Jason LaCanfora acknowledged the rumors swirling around Bill Parcells and a potential departure from the Miami Dolphins' front office after the season.

LaCanfora's report:

There are a lot of people who believe Dolphins [vice president of football operations] Bill Parcells will explore his options after this year. He can get out of his contract if he likes, and we’ve already seen Cleveland talking about looking for a football czar as well as four or five other teams looking to change people atop their management paradigm. If he were to leave Miami, Carl Peterson is a name to keep an eye on. Long-time runner of the Kansas City Chiefs, Peterson could go to Miami. He has a strong relationship with Dolphins owner Stephen Ross, and [Dolphins general manager] Jeff Ireland used to work with Peterson in Kansas City. So that would be a natural transition.
