While some players' efforts in the Football scene tend to fade away with time, there are few veterans who still and will remain in people's hearts just for the sheer tenacity they delivered. This leads us to someone that fits the description cut. Meet Bill Parcells!
Bill Parcells is the man who drove NY Giants to victory in the Super Bowl XXI(1987) and XXV(1991).
Included in the Pro Football Hall of Fame(2013), he is the only coach, who has guided four huge teams(New England Patriots, New York Jets, Dallas Cowboys, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers) to playoffs.
After 40 long years of togetherness, Bill Parcells and his wife Judith Goss ended their marriage in January 2002. They had been together since 1962. As for the reason of their divorce, his former wife complained that Bill was growing “distant” and not “communicating meaningfully” anymore like they used to have in their past married relationship. Eventually, a judge in Monmouth County, N.J granted their divorce January 16, 2002.
Together, they had welcomed their first baby girl Suzy just after eight months of their wedding. The ex-duo later blessed with two more daughters, namely Dallas and Jill over the years.
Well, his youngsters have now grown up-his eldest daughter even has got married to Scott Pioli(38) and share a daughter.
So what about Bill’s rest of the family? He was born to his parents Ida Parcells and Charles Parcells and grew up in New Jersey alongside his brothers Doug Parcells and Don Parcells. Sadly, his brother Don Parcells lost his fight against brain cancer and passed away at the age of 62.
Net Worth- 2019
The former head coach has a net worth of about $25 million, as of 2019. Until his retirement in 2007, he worked on and off the coaching realm and guided four teams to playoffs. That is an achievement in itself. Bill’s last seen involvement was as an Executive Vice President of Football Operations.
With a desire of sharing his ups and downs, he published his memoirs The Final Season: My Last Year As Head Coach in the NFL(2000) and Parcells: A Football Life(2014).
