Bill Parcells says the Saints haven't contacted him about possibly coaching the team in the wake of Sean Payton's 1-year suspension, which still could be appealed.
Parcells did say, however, that Payton has spoken to him about how to handle the season.
The Saints have yet to announce their future coaching plans.
Payton's agent said Monday "no decisions have been made about an appeal."
Donald Yee says Payton "fully supports the league's player safety goals" and that Payton "probably won't address the entire league" Tuesday when he arrives at the NFL owners meetings.
When Parcells was asked if anyone in the Saints organization had talked to him about coaching the team in 2012, he said "No," prior to the New York Mets spring training game Monday against St. Louis.
