Parcells came out of retirement in 1993, to become the head coach of another struggling franchise at the time, the Patriots. Parcells led the Patriots to an appearance in Super Bowl XXXI during his fourth season as their coach and even though the game ended in defeat for the Patriots, he had changed the fortunes of the team once again. He left the franchise after their Super Bowl loss amid conflicts with Patriots owner Robert Kraft and became the head coach of the Jets for the next season.

Bill Parcells Documentary | Bill Belichick

Two Bills is a documentary directed by Ken Rodgers and produced by NFL Films. It traces the four-decade relationship between Bill Belichick and Parcells, the two coaching masters. The two first met when Belichick was a teenager and his father was coaching for the Navy while Parcells was coaching in Army. They became assistants with the New York Giants on the same day in 1979, and after Parcells took over as head coach, they won two Super Bowls together. Belichick would go on to win five Super Bowls of his own with the Patriots buttressed by what he learned from Parcells. Through all the ups and downs of their careers, including some memorable games when they were on opposite sides of the field, they forged a bond that few men of their stature have ever experienced. It is Two Bills, but one epic story.
