Fans of the NFL coaching turnstile may want to check the expiration date on that can of Old Tuna sitting on the shelf since the Dolphins started to rebuild.
Yes, reports are now circulating that the Big Tuna himself, Bill Parcells, is about to go in when the Saints go marching out.
Can it be that the Tuna will take over the Saints for one year on an interim basis, subbing for the lowlife coach who thought he was Steve McQueen in Wanted Dead or Alive?
Bounty hunters will stand aside when Bill Parcells takes over the New Orleans franchise. Maybe Sean Payton does not yet realize his job is in jeopardy now from another source. The Big Tuna is more dangerous than a Great White Shark.
Parcells in past incarnations has come on to a franchise for five seasons and then disappeared back into the briny deep. Ask those in New York, Boston, and Miami. He has an appetite for Super Bowls of chowdah.
Now pushing the can expiration date well past the retirement years, can Bill Parcells take over for five years? Will he settle for the taste of one year?
Since the Tuna Melt went into his latest front office incarnation, he has not been seen much. Perhaps he now wants to buy the groceries and cook the meal in New Orleans. Cajun cooking will never be the same.
The Tuna is a "bon appétit" kind of coach. Step aside, Julia Child, this coach knows a thing or two about the recipe book.
With the return of Bill Parcells for one more dance, we suspect the movie version of his life is on hold for a few more seasons.
Meryl Streep is still the frontrunner to play Big Tuna in the movie biography.
