Football nomad Bill Parcells came into South Florida with a reputation for quickly turning around franchises.
When Wayne Huizenga stole Parcells from the Atlanta Falcons, handed him a vice president of football operations position for a 1-15 team, the Tuna promised to build a foundation that would set the Miami Dolphins up to not just win now, but in the foreseeable future.
