Jerry Shows Parcells the Money Print E-mail

The dance is finally over. The 2006 Cowboys have a coach. There was a lot of speculation. There were a lot of people with a lot of unnamed sources saying that Bill Parcells was going to hang it up. But in the end, we got to the truth of the matter. Like most things in this world, this dance was all about money.

The announcement of Bill Parcells’ new contract at least removes the shroud of uncertainty from Valley Ranch for this year.

But it removes if for this year only.

It was announced as an extension. Technically I don’t believe that’s true. This is a new contract of 2 years in length. And my sources tell me that Bill Parcells got a 7 figure raise for next season. And that is all the Cowboys are guaranteed next season.

A year from now we are almost certainly going to go through the same kind of dance. With Parcells suggesting he’s got to take some time to decide whether he wants to coach again. One wonders if there’ll be the same concurrent rumors that TV or other teams have interest in him.

What Bill Parcells did was get himself a spiffy raise for one year. And that is all. Forget the announcement that it was two years. Anyone employing Bill Parcells for the rest of his life lives with the very real possibility that he’ll walk away.
