Sure, Let's Add Bill Parcells to the Chiefs Rumor Mill

Primetime noted in this FanShot from Pro Football Talk that Miami Dolphins executive Bill Parcells was seen at the Senior Bowl yesterday.

At a time when rumors continue to circulate that Stephen Ross might soon acquire control of the Dolphins from Wayne Huizenga, which would then allow V.P. of football operations Bill Parcells to walk away with pay, Parcells made an appearance on Monday at the Senior Bowl in Mobile.

Well, it now appears, as of just a bit ago, that Bill Parcells will indeed have the option to leave his Miami Dolphins contract. More from PFT:

Control of the Miami Dolphins will pass from Wayne Huizenga to Stephen Ross on Tuesday, according to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald.
Once the deal is done, V.P. of football operations Bill Parcells will have a 30-day window within which to walk away from the remaining three years of his contract, with $12 million in hand and the ability to promptly accept employment with another team.
Surely, it’s not a coincidence that Parcells was at the Senior Bowl on Monday, despite the fact that only attended once during four years as head coach of the Cowboys.

Okay. Let me get this straight.

Bill Parcells was seen at the Senior Bowl, fueling speculation that he could get back into the coaching game because the event is such a coaching hot spot.

If the Dolphins change ownership (which it appears they will), Bill Parcells can collect his money and walk away from the team with no penalty.

Bill Parcells is the father-in-law to new Kansas City Chiefs GM Scott Pioli.

Therefore, Parcells could be coming to Kansas City. Gotcha.

Possible? Sure, I guess anything is possible. Likely? Nah. I don't think so.
