PARCELLS' COACHING TREE: The Cowboys are about to climb out onto another limb of the Bill Parcells...

PARCELLS' COACHING TREE: The Cowboys are about to climb out onto another limb of the Bill Parcells coaching tree. Last week, the Cowboys bumped into Denver rookie coach Josh McDaniels, a"son'' of Bill Belichick and therefore a Parcells "grandson.'' This week it's Kansas City rookie coach Todd Haley, who of course was a lieutenant under Parcells in Dallas from 2004-06. Those are obvious ones. But the tree is more extensive than you think. On this year's Dallas schedule alone: Carolina's John Fox was Giants aide under Ray Handley, who is a Parcells guy. The Giants' Tom Coughlin is a Parcells guy. Sean Payton in New Orleans is a Parcells guy. In total, six of the Cowboys' 16 opponents are coached by Parcells disciples. Throw in Cleveland coach Eric Mangini, coach and the Rams' Steve Spagnuolo (a grandson via Coughlin) and almost a third of the coaches in the NFL spring from Parcells roots.
