Tom Kean, Bobbi Brown, David Sarnoff, Ray Chambers, Joetta Clark Diggs and Jersey Joe Walcott.

Parcells was also recently named to ESPN's list of "Greatest Coaches in NFL History." The Big Tuna landed at No. 11 all time.
Parcells' name had also been the news lately after a USA TODAY Sports article quoted the coach regretted leaving the New England Patriots in 1997. Parcells openly stated he was "too headstrong," and that both he and Patriots owner Robert Kraft would have handled matters differently.
