In Kansas City, Daboll’s success will be tied to quarterback Matt Cassel, and vice versa. If one fails, it’s likely that the other will, too. It’s a high-pressure assignment. But those who knew Daboll in high school and college still believe in him. Parrinello said he wouldn’t count the determined kid out. It should help, he said, that Daboll will be surrounded by familiar faces — Crennel, general manager Scott Pioli and Cassel know Daboll from his time in New England — and those he has won games with in the past.“He has been relentless in pursuit of success,” Parrinello said. “…When there are other good people around him, like in the case of the New England Patriots, I think he will do his part to hold up that success.
“It’s been proven that when he’s in that situation, he’ll thrive, and he’ll be part of the answer.”
