Bill Parcells will forever be remembered as one of the most important people in the history of the Patriots franchise.
When he was named head coach in 1993, he brought instant credibility to the Patriots organization. He stayed for four seasons, his final game the team's 35-21 loss to the Packers in Super Bowl XXXI.
Parcells' divorce with the Patriots has been well documented at this point, so this comment from his online chat on NFL.com caught the eye today. Asked the greatest regret of his coaching career, Parcells said: "Probably having to leave the New England Patriots."
