Parcells attended River Dell Regional High School in Oradell, New Jersey, where he became a keen football, baseball and basketball player. After matriculation, he enrolled in Colgate University in New York, and later transferred to the University of Wichita in Kansas, joining the school’s football team as a linebacker. Upon his graduation with a physical education degree, he was selected in the seventh round of the NFL Draft by the Detroit Lions. However, the team released him during the training camp, and Parcell turned to coaching.
In 1964 he was appointed first assistant coach at Hastings College in Nebraska, and went on to work as assistant coach at Wichita State, Army, Florida State, Vanderbilt and Texas Tech in the following years.
In 1978, Parcells landed his first head coaching job at the Air Force Academy in Colorado. A year later, he was offered a position as defensive coordinator with the New York Giants, however, he declined the offer, completely withdrawing from football and taking a job at a real estate company.
This didn’t last lng, and he returned to coaching in 1980, taking the position of the linebackers coach for the New England Patriots.
After one season, he became assistant coach for the Giants, and when the team’s head coach left in 1983, he took over his position; his net worth started to rise. Under Parcells, the team won two Super Bowl rings, but in 1991 he announced his retirement, citing health concerns, and began working as a football analyst for NBC Sports and also hosting the sports show “Around the NFL”. However, in 1993 he again returned to coaching, taking the job of the head coach of the New England Patriots, whom he also led to earn a berth in the Super Bowl in 1996, but after the team’s Super Bowl loss, Parcells announced his retirement again.
Shortly after, he became the head coach of the New York Jets, leading the team to the AFC Championship Game in 1998, their first division championship since 1969. The following year he announced his third retirement, staying with the team one more year as a general manager.
Three years later, Parcells returned to the sport, becoming the head coach of the Dallas Cowboys. His tenure with the Cowboys ended in 2007, with a 34–30 record, and two playoff appearances. He became the only coach in NFL history to lead four different teams to the playoffs. Compiling an overall record of 172-130-1 in the regular season and 11-8 in the playoffs, Parcells established himself as one of the most successful coaches in NFL history, which significantly contributed to his wealth.
The same year Parcells retired from coaching, this time for good – his net worth was very well established. Not long after, he took a job as the new Executive Vice-President of Football Operations at the Miami Dolphins. As his four-year contract with the Dolphins ended in 2010, he began working as a studio analyst for ESPN.
In 2013 he was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. A year later, he published his memoir “Parcells: A Football Life”, written by former Sports Illustrated writer Nunyo Demasio.
