After helping the Dolphins' turnaround from 1-15 to an 11-5 playoff team in 2008 and influencing this year's personnel decisions, Bill Parcells turned over control of the team to GM Jeff Ireland in September, as expected, but remains with the team as a consultant — for now. According to his contract, Parcells can cash out whenever he wants, and he has alluded to remaining in football in a new capacity. What does this mean for the future of the Dolphins, post-Parcells? The way we hear it, club officials were well-aware that Parcells would not finish his contract after laying the foundation for Ireland and head coach Tony Sparano. There have been theories that Carl Peterson, former CEO of the Chiefs and close friend of 'Fins owner Stephen Ross, could join the team in a Parcells-esque role. We hear that those are simply rumors, and Sparano and Ireland will get at least a season before Ross looks for another football "consultant."
