16. New Boss

What: 1982 NFL offseason
Date: 12/15/1982

After the strike-shortened 1982 NFL season, Giants head coach Ray Perkins resigned from his post to take a college head coaching position. So the G-Men took a shot on their defensive coordinator Bill Parcells and named him to the top position. Two Super Bowls later, he retired in 1990. Looks like the Giants made the right decision, huh?
