Baby "Bill"

Duane Charles Parcells at age two. Duane grew to dislike his birth name, deeming it unusual and perhaps feminine. In the eighth grade, he was constantly mistaken for someone named Bill, but he declined to correct anyone. Within a year, only Ida and Charles called their son by his real name.Courtesy of Bill Parcells

Archrivals In Black and White

Archrivals Bill Walsh and Bill Parcells sideby side during pregame activities at Giants Stadium on October 5, 1987. On Monday Night Football, Walsh’s 49ers would defeat Parcells’s Giants 41–21. Their high-profile rivalry produced some of the NFL’s most memorable games, occasionally leading to Super Bowl titles. By 2006, roughly three-fourths of NFL head coaches were linked to one man or the other. Michael Zagaris, Getty Images

Ready For The Elements

In snowy conditions with windchill temperatures of21 degrees at Mile High Stadium, on December 10, 1989, Parcells guided Big Blue to a 14–7 victory over Denver. During a sit-down with Woody Hayes in early 1978, the Ohio State legend told the then rookie head coach of Air Force, “If you’re gonna play in the Atlantic, you gotta train in the Atlantic!” Several years later, when Parcells joined forces with Giants GM George Young, the pair targeted athletes capable of excelling in inclement weather.

Leading The Charge

Bill Parcells leads his co*cksure, charged-up players, including center Kevin Mawae (#68) and special-teams ace Corwin Brown (#44), at the Meadowlands for their 1998 regular-season finale on December 27. Gang Green would trounce Pete Carroll’s Patriots, 31–10, concluding a historic year highlighted by the franchise’s first- ever division title. Only a couple seasons removed from ignominy, the Jets took most of their club-record twelve victories by at leasta touchdown, strutting into the playoffs. Thomas E. Franklin, Bergen Record

Legendary "Enemies" Enjoy Each Other's Company

Two “enemies” embrace and share laughs at the Hall of Fame ceremonies on August 2, 2013, in Canton, Ohio. Joe Gibbs and Bill Parcells sat at the same table during the Ray Nitschke Memorial Luncheon and spoke more to each other that day than they had donein decades as NFC East rivals: Parcells’s Giants and Gibbs’s Redskins underwent epic clashes that determined championships and legacies. Parcells explains, “You learn to respect your enemies but execute all traitors, and that’s how I felt about Joe. I always held him in high regard.”Ben Liebenberg, AP

Giant Trophies

The only men to have captured Lombardi Trophies as Giants head coaches—Bill Parcells and Tom Coughlin, each of whom won two Super Bowl titles—stand next to their glistening prizes on June 10, 2014, at team headquarters in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Parcells dislikes comparing his disciples but concedes that Coughlin is the most similar to him. The Giants wideouts coach from 1988 to 1990 describes Parcells as the person who taught him far more about football than anyone else: “The best.” Evan Pinkus, AP
