Bill Parcells, who coached the New York Giants to Super Bowl victories in 1986 and 1990, will headline the Class of 2013 that will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio Saturday evening.
The honor comes a year later than Parcells should have entered the Hall, but is still well-deserved. He is the only coach in NFL history to take four different teams to the playoffs.
Coverage of the ceremony, which begins at 7 p.m. ET, will be on NFL Network and ESPN2.
Parcells, throughout his vagabond career, was known for his ability to motivate players.
The Giants, of course, nearly fired Parcells after his first season, 1983, when the team went 3-12-1.
"It’s a good thing he stayed. It’s a good thing they kept him. That’s what I say. He’s a great coach," said current Giants coach Tom Coughlin, who will leave training camp Saturday afternoon to attend the induction ceremony.
