Few coaches in NFL history have had more success than Bill Parcells. The former Giants, Patriots, Jets and Cowboys head coach won two Super Bowls and ranks 10th all-time with 172 regular-season victories. Now a TV analyst, Parcells told the media on Monday that he's unlikely to ever roam a sideline again.

"I'm done," Parcells said on a conference call regarding his nomination to the Patriots' Hall of Fame. "I know I've said that before. You better put it down in pencil. But my full intention is that I'm going to be 70 years old in August and I'm enjoying my time now … I still have a lot of things I'd like to try to do, but I think I'm going to leave the NFL to someone else now."

Most recently Parcells worked as the executive vice president of football operations for the Dolphins before stepping down last October. The 69-year-old is working as a draft analyst for ESPN.
