Report Claims Bill Parcells Will Not Coach Saints
Chris Mortensen of espn.com is reporting with “virtual certainty” that Bill Parcells will not be the interim head coach the New Orleans Saints in 2012. Current head coach Sean Payton will begin a season-long suspension this Monday.
While no official announcement has been made, the report suggests the interim coach will be Joe Vitt (pictured left), the current assistant head coach and linebackers coach. However, Vitt is set to be suspended for the first six regular season games of 2012.
In the event that Vitt is indeed the interim coach, he’ll be available to oversee the team’s offseason program. Other assistants will manage the head coaching duties during his suspension.
