Former NY Jets head coach Bill Parcells is one of seven newly named Hall of Fame inductees. Parcells coached the Giants to two Super Bowl wins and made another Super Bowl appearance with the New England Patriots. He took over the Jets after a 1 and 15 season and took them to the AFC Championship game in his second season with the team in 1998.
Getting in on his fourth try, Parcells led an induction class that also included mouthy defensive lineman Warren Sapp, prolific receiver Cris Carter and a pair of stalwarts from the trenches, offensive linemen Jonathan Ogden and Larry Allen. The class of 2013 also included a pair of senior selections, Curley Culp and Dave Robinson.
New York Jets owner Woody Johnson released this statement:
