Blame no one. Expect Nothing. Do Something.
– Duane Charles “Bill” Parcells
Born on August 22, 1941, Parcells is a former American football head coach, both in college with the Air Force Falcons, and the National Football League with the New York Giants, New England Patriots, New York Jets, and Dallas Cowboys. He is known as “The Big Tuna”, a nickname about the shape of his physique derived from a team joke during his tenure as linebackers coach of the New England Patriots. Parcells won two Super Bowl rings with the New York Giants, defeating the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XXI and the Buffalo Bills in Super Bowl XXV. He led the New England Patriots to Super Bowl XXXI, but lost to the Green Bay Packers 35-21. He also led the New York Jets to the 1998 AFC Championship Game. On February 2, 2013, Parcells was voted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
