Wow, Parcells is taking over at all levels...he must have a head coach in mind, because hiring assistants without giving the head coach some say would create some tension...

The Miami Dolphins aren't waiting to get a head coach in place before assembling a coaching staff. Several Florida newspapers report that new vice president of football operations Bill Parcells has tapped David Lee, a former Dallas assistant, to be Miami's new quarterbacks coach and is interviewing other candidates for the staff.
Lee was quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator at Arkansas in 2007 but worked under Parcells with the Cowboys from 2003-06. Lee also played for Vanderbilt when Parcells was defensive coordinator there. The Dolphins have interviewed Cowboys assistant head coach Tony Sparano, but no team can hire him until Dallas is eliminated from the playoffs. Sparano also has interviewed with the Falcons and Ravens about their open head coaching jobs. The Dolphins also continue to interview other head coach candidates. Minnesota Vikings defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier was in Florida on Monday to begin interviewing for the head coaching job. Next up for an interview is Baltimore Ravens defensive coordinator Rex Ryan.
