Report: Dolphins' ex-football czar Parcells packs up for 'leave'

Former Miami Dolphins football czar Bill Parcells has no plans to shop his services to other NFL teams after vacating his office at the team's training facility, the Miami Herald reported Tuesday, citing league sources.

Parcells, who relinquished many of his powers to general manager Jeff Ireland just before the season, is calling the move "a leave of absence", team and league sources told the newspaper.

One source told the Herald on Monday night that "Bill is still performing his duties to the Dolphins, but he's choosing to do it in a different fashion."

Parcells remains open to the possibility of preparing for April's NFL Draft with the Dolphins, the newspaper reported. Regardless of the duration of the leave, Parcells told several members of the organization that he will return in some capacity but will not move anything back into his former office.

There was a clause written into Parcells' contract that stipulates if former owner Wayne Huizenga sold the team, Parcells would be paid the remaining balance of his four-year, $12 million deal regardless of whether he stays with the team or not.

When Huizenga sold to Stephen Ross last year, Parcells stayed on because he wanted to continue grooming Ireland and coach Tony Sparano. He planned to eventually leave whenever he thought they were ready.

Parcells took over football operations at the end of the 2007 season, and Ireland and Sparano were hired shortly thereafter.

Parcells worked a full schedule during his first two years with the Dolphins. He arrived early each day, watched practices from a golf cart, poured over film and offered players frequent feedback.

There's no need to fret about missing any games. You can watch every contest again with Game Rewind. Get more information here.

That routine ended at the conclusion of this year's training camp, but Parcells, 69, has continued to attend some practices.

Parcells rarely speaks to the media, but in a conference call with reporters last month, he said he expects to find something to keep him busy when he leaves the Dolphins. Some took the comments as a signal he's in the market for a new job.

"I'm not a 'sit-around-the-fireplace' guy," Parcells said. "We'll see what happens when the time comes, but I know I want to do something, even if it's not day to day."

As a coach, Parcells took over losing teams with the New York Giants, New England Patriots, New York Jets and Dallas Cowboys and transformed them into winners. He won five division titles in 19 seasons and led the Giants to two Super Bowl championships.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

When they reported this yesterday they said he reportedly told the team he was still going to work for them, be the consultant that he has been all along, and finish out his contract with them, e.g. working with them until the contract expired. Maybe he's having a change of heart.

Didn't he 'take leave' or 'step down' a few weeks back? This isn't the first I've heard of this, but I didn't hear anything about it yesterday.

The only reason I opened it is because I hadn't heard anything about Parcells for a long time. It is not like I am tracking the story by the minute.
