NFL and Goodell give the OK to the Saints to hire Parcells

Per si.com:

While NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is deciding on punishment for players and listening to appeals in the Saints' bounty case, he says he won't stand in the way if New Orleans asks Bill Parcells to take over as interim coach.

"That's their decision. They need to make those decisions and we'll move forward," Goodell said Monday at the opening of an NFL pop-up store featuring new team apparel. "Bill's a great coach, and I'm sure will add a lot of personality and intrigue. And he's as competitive as they get so I'm sure he'll do a good job."

Before the Saints pick someone to run the team this year, Goodell still has to rule on coach Sean Payton's appeal of his season-long suspension, along with the appeals of shorter suspensions to assistant coach Joe Vitt and general manager Mickey Loomis and penalties handed down to the team.

Goodell expects to hear the appeals this week, and hopes to making a ruling shortly thereafter.

I would not be surprised if we hear tomorrow on Parcels.

I think it would do Spags good to sit under Parcells for a year then return to HCing.

I keep hearing all this Parcells talk but not one word from Parcells himself. What does Parcells say about it?

He said if Payton asked him to do it, he would out of loyalty, but that he has not yet been asked.

I think you raise a great point. Spags seems to have motivational issues and Parcels is a master at getting the most out of players. It would do him good to learn from one of the best.

Maybe, but I would consider Coughlin a master at motivating players much like Parcells is, and Spags worked with TC long enough to learn them kind of things.
