Parcells signed a four-year contract Thursday to lead the Dolphins' football operations, one day after turning down essentially the same role with the Atlanta Falcons.
The two-time Super Bowl champion coach will report directly to Miami owner Wayne Huizenga, whose affinity for big-name help now has led him to Parcells - a 66-year-old former coach of four NFL clubs who owns a home in South Florida and now has a job there, too.
``He has a proven track record of success everywhere he has been in the National Football League,'' Huizenga said. ``And his football acumen will help put the Miami Dolphins franchise back among the elite of the NFL.''
