Parcells Is No Patriot

FOXBORO, Massachussetts -- New England Patriots coach Bill Parcells informed owner Bob Kraft on Friday that he will no longer coach the team.


According to the terms of his contract, Parcells will not be allowed to take any other coaching job in 1997 unless the Patriots receive sufficient compensation.


Parcells officially announced at a news conference that he had informed Kraft, at the request of NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue, his intention not to coach the Patriots in 1997.


Meanwhile, Buffalo Bills' Jim Kelly ended an 11-year pro gridiron career, when he announced his retirement Friday.
