The TheRanchReport.com has learned that Bill Parcells and Jerry Jones met on Thursday afternoon at Valley Ranch to discuss a contract extension, possibly as long as three years.
The meeting can be assumed to be an indication that Parcells' "contemplation of retirement" may be behind him, our source said.
Interesting if true.
Also, this article on Sean Payton and the Packers has the following:
There wasn't immediate word on how the interview went, but most accounts said that Payton impressed officials with his intelligence and football acumen, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.
"He's the new breed guy coming up," a close friend of Payton's told the Journal Sentinel. "He's a head coach. He has no time for drama and everything else. He just wants to coach. He's interested in living a very balanced life."
The combination of Payton and Ty Detmer, a candidate to become part of Payton's staff, could ease the coaching transistion for Brett Favre.
