Bill Parcells and Marv Levy, coaching rivals in the last Super Bowl played in Tampa 10 years ago, are among 15 finalists for today's election to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Parcells, who retired as director of football operations for the New York Jets this month, was on the sidelines when the New York Giants defeated Levy's Buffalo Bills, 20-19, in the 1991 game. That was the first of four consecutive Super Bowl trips for the Bills and Levy, an unparalleled stretch of success.

Former coach Bill Parcells, defensive tackle Warren Sapp, offensive tackle Jonathan Ogden and four others were elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday. Sapp, who played with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Oakland Raiders, and Odgen, an All-American from UCLA who played with the Baltimore Ravens, each were selected in their first year of eligibility. Parcells led the New York Giants to two Super Bowl victories. Joining them in the Class of 2013 will be offensive guard Larry Allen of the Dallas Cowboys, defensive tackle Curley Culp of the Kansas City Chiefs, receiver Cris Carter of the Minnesota Vikings and linebacker Dave Robinson of the Green Bay Packers.

Bill Parcells was Sean Payton's boss in Dallas and has served as an unofficial advisor to his former assistant coach since Payton became head coach in New Orleans in 2006. Now will Parcells fill in for Payton while the Saints coach serves his season-long suspension in 2012? The two have discussed the possibility of Parcells taking over as the Saints' interim head coach in Payton's absense, according to ESPN. Sources say the two men have talked several times since Payton's punishment for his role in the Saints' bounty scandal was announced last week, and part of those conversations included Payton gauging Parcells' interest in the interim coaching position.

It looks as if Bill Parcells won't return to the NFL to fill the New Orleans Saints coaching vacancy, and instead the team will likely promote an assistant coach to fill Sean Payton's job for a year. According to reports by ESPN's Chris Mortensen and Sports Illustrated's Peter King, Parcells has bowed out of the running to temporarily replace Payton, suspended for a year for his role in the Saints' bounty scandal. Multiple reports say the most likely candidate to replace Payton is Joe Vitt, the team's assistant head coach in charge of linebackers who also has been suspended for the first six games of the season.

For a self-proclaimed New Jersey guy, Bill Parcells seems to have plenty of wanderlust. Soon to be a free-agent coach, he may end up being that true rarity, a Super Bowl-winning free-agent coach. Could Parcells return to the Jersey Meadowlands? Or go elsewhere in the NFL? We won't know until after he finishes up another Super Bowl assignment. For someone who craves stability in the way his football team is run, Parcells sometimes displays a strange way of conducting his professional life.

Bill Parcells says he has not spoken to the New Orleans Saints about becoming their interim head coach for the 2012 season, replacing Sean Payton if he serves out his suspension by the NFL in connection with the bounty scandal. Payton says he and Parcells, a close friend, "really haven't gotten into it" either. But the notion just won't go away. In fact, Payton may have left the door open for speculation while speaking to a gathering of about 25 reporters who waited for him in the lobby of the Breakers Hotel, where the NFL is staging its annual meetings.

The Giants call him Big Tuna because he looks like something that should be fighting a hook around a party boat in the North Atlantic. But Bill Parcells reminds you more of a New York cop. You wouldn't want to ask him directions to the Metropolitan Museum, but he'd be nice to have around if a motorcycle gang showed up. He's blunt, antagonistic, irascible, outspoken, cynical and superstitious. Dirty Harry to a T. A perfect part for Clint Eastwood. And a perfect coach for the New York Giants.

Bill Parcells has suddenly become a hot commodity again in the NFL. In an off-season that has already featured more than its share of unexpected twists, here's yet another one: Vikings owner Zygi Wilf is going hard after the 70-year-old former coach and executive to "run the show" in Minnesota, according to the New York Post. Parcells, whose last NFL job as executive vice president of football operations with the Miami Dolphins ended midseason in 2010, has been rumored to be a candidate for the New Orleans Saints' interim coaching job if his close friend Sean Payton's one-year suspension is upheld.

PALM BEACH, Fla. -- New Orleans Saints Coach Sean Payton -- making his first public comments since the NFL announced his one-year suspension for the bounty scandal -- said Tuesday he is disappointed with himself, is mulling an appeal of the penalty, and has been speaking with Bill Parcells but not necessarily to convince him to coach the team this season. "I've really called him more as more of a mentor, someone to shoot some ideas off of him," said Payton, who spoke to a gathering of about 25 reporters who waited for him in the lobby of the Breakers Hotel, where the league is staging its annual meetings.

Bill Parcells is putting his protege in charge. The Miami Dolphins' football czar has given control of the team to General Manager Jeff Ireland but will retain a role as a daily consultant. The Dolphins announced the move in a three-sentence statement Tuesday, five days before the start of the season. The change was part of a long-range plan when the Parcells regime took over at the end of the 2007 season, the statement said. Parcells joined the Dolphins in December 2007 as executive vice president of football operations, then hired Ireland two weeks later.

Jerry Jones and Bill Parcells seemed an unlikely pair to work together. Jones was the meddling owner and general manager of the Dallas Cowboys, a team that had fallen on tough times since winning three Super Bowls in the mid-1990s. A demanding, do-it-my-way coach, Parcells was retired after taking two different teams to the Super Bowl: winning with the New York Giants (1987, 1991) and losing with the New England Patriots in 1997.

Dan Henning looks at it this way: "You never like to coach against a good friend." Bill Parcells agrees, saying, "It's not all that much fun, but it's something you have to do." These words demonstrate how uncomfortable the opposing coaches are about sending their teams against each other in Sunday's game between the Chargers and New York Giants at San Diego Jack Murphy Stadium.
