“He has a proven track record of success everywhere he has been in the National Football League,” Dolphins owner Wayne Huizenga said Thursday afternoon. “And his football acumen will help put the Miami Dolphins franchise back among the elite of the NFL.”

He will reportedly report directly to Huizenga. The 66-year-old already owns a house in South Florida, according to ESPN.

“I’m honored to join such an illustrious franchise as the Miami Dolphins and to work for one of the best owners in the league in Wayne Huizenga,” Parcells said. “He shares my same commitment to winning, and I told him I would do everything I can to help turn around the team’s fortunes.”

Parcells was last the head coach of the Dallas Cowboys, who he led from 2003 through 2006. He was 172-130-1 as an NFL head coach with the New York Giants, New York Jets, the New England Patriots, and the Cowboys.

From 1997 through 1999, he served as head coach and general manager of the Jets.

“The guy’s a legend,” running back Lorenzo Booker said. “There’s no doubt about it. He knows what he’s doing. Obviously, his resume is a mile long. But I’m a new guy in this league, so I don’t even know what a vice president does, to be honest with you, so I’m waiting to find out as much as you guys.”

Parcells will get to evaluate the players with two games left in the season. The Dolphins are on the road against the Patriots on December 23rd. 

One week later, the team will conclude its season with a home game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
