Patriots' owner Robert Kraft on Bill Parcells

By James Walker

Robert Kraft made a lot of smart moves as New England Patriots owner. But one of first and best decisions was to hire 2013 Hall of Famer Bill Parcells.

On Saturday, Kraft offered his thoughts on Parcells' induction:
"Congratulations to Coach Parcells on his election into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. It is well deserved. As a Patriots fan, I will always appreciate the credibility he brought to our franchise as a two-time Super Bowl champion. We had never had a head coach with those credentials. I am very happy for Bill and look forward to his enshrinement ceremonies."
