Parcells' moves through the years

By Pat Yasinskas

PALM BEACH, Fla. -- With the news that the New Orleans Saints will meet with Bill Parcells to talk about the legendary coach stepping in for Sean Payton, it’s time for a little run through history.

In addition to winning a lot of games, Parcells track record shows the man nicknamed “The Tuna’’ has a history of flip-flopping around. He’s changed jobs multiple times and even left the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at the altar – twice.

So let’s keep that in mind as we wait to see if anything plays out with Parcells and the Saints. Let’s start by reviewing a short quote Parcells gave Peter King in this story.

"Do I have the bug?'' Parcells said when asked if he had a strong desire to return to coaching. "I don't think so.''

Now, with help from ESPN senior researcher Peter Newmann, let’s take a look at some Parcells quotes at various times he’s made career moves in the past.
