The Jets-Giants game Sunday will feature two Bill Parcells disciples, Todd Bowles and Tom Coughlin. They learned a lot from Parcells, who learned a lot from his mentor, Mickey Corcoran, his old HS basketball coach. Sadly, Corcoran died Sunday at the age of 93. In his Hall-of-Fame speech in '13, Parcells called Corcoran "a second father to me." Corcoran played HS basketball in NJ for Vince Lombardi, creating a Lombardi-Parcells link. The branches on that coaching tree will reach to Sunday's game.
