Is Bill Parcells The Latest ESPN NFL Analyst?

With the NFL right around the corner, ESPN has gone on an analysts hiring spree, signing Eric Mangini, Hugh Douglas and Damien Woody.

It appears the Worldwide Leader has their eyes set on at least one more big name, according to USA Today:

“ESPN spokesman Mike Soltys says ex-coach Bill Parcells is still “likely” to be added as an analyst, primarily to appear on big-event coverage like the the postseason and NFL Draft and making occasional regular-season appearances rather than taking on a weekly schedule.”

ESPN has had a better offseason than the Philadelphia Eagles.

Jim Gray's Terrible No Good Year Continues

Jim Gray, still trying to wash off The Decision stink, was supposed to spend the weekend working the Northern Trust Open in Pacific Palisades, Calif. for the Golf Channel. Yeah, not going to happen anymore.

The broadcaster got into an argument with Dustin Johnson‘s caddie and has been removed from covering the event.

“Our aim is to provide the best possible golf coverage for our viewers. Anything else is a disservice. In order not to provide further distraction, we’ve decided to remove Jim from this particular assignment,” Golf Channel spokesman Dan Higgins told the USA Today.

In August, Gray had it out with United States Ryder captain Corey Pavin.

The Golf Channel refused to comment about whether they would hire Gray again. Decisions, decisions.
