According to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen, former NFL head coach Bill Parcells has decided to remain retired and not step in as the New Orleans Saints interim head coach for the 2012 season.
On Sportscenter, Mortensen said that Parcells spoke with Saints head coach Sean Payton and told him that he’s not interested in taking the job.
Saints assistant head coach Joe Vitt has been mentioned as a possible candidate to take over as the interim head coach, even though he’s suspended for the first six games of the regular season.
I believe Parcells is making a smart decision by deciding to not come back for one season and prolong is chance at getting inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
