Bill Parcells has informed the New Orleans Saints the he will not replace suspended coach Sean Payton and is staying retired, according to a league source.
The Saints will now look to hire from within the organization. By promoting an assistant on the team, the Saints will not have to interview a minority candidate in accordance with the league’s Rooney Rule.
Who wants Parcells without Bill Belichick running the defense, anyway?
Christmas Ape is bummed that neither Tuna nor the Dunge will be taking over in N'awlins.
