Bill Parcells in NY Daily News
"I had plenty of opportunities to do things with different teams, and I've turned them all down," Parcells said Wednesday afternoon. "But this one is special. This guy is like family to me. And if I could help him, I would."
Payton, who is deciding whether to appeal a season-long ban for his role in a bounty program that involved paying Saints players to knock out opponents with bonus pay checks and cash, has broached the idea of Parcells standing in as his interim coach.
"I don't know how this is going to play out," Parcells said. "I really don't know anything about the situation. There's a lot of things going on here, and I would suspect it's going to take a while to all sort out."
