INDIANAPOLIS, Feb. 4 (UPI) -- Former New York Giants Coach Bill Parcells failed to make this year's cut in balloting for the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

The results of this year's vote were revealed Saturday in Indianapolis on the eve of the 2012 Super Bowl pitting the Giants against the New England Patriots.

Parcells won two Super Bowls as the Giants' mentor, in 1986 and 1990. He also coached the Patriots, Jets and Cowboys. His career record was 183-138-1.

He and wide receivers Cris Carter and Andre Reed made the first cut but were not among the finalists in the voting.

Curtis Martin, Dermontti Dawson, Chris Doleman, Cortez Kennedy, Willie Roaf and senior nominee Jack Butler were all elected by the selection committee.

Martin surpassed 1,000 rushing yards in 10 of his 11 NFL seasons with the Patriots and Jets; Dawson was a center for the Pittsburgh Steelers from 1988-2000; Doleman was an eight-time Pro Bowl defender for the Vikings, Falcons and 49ers; Kennedy was a defensive tackle for the Seahawks; and Roaf was a tackle for the Saints and Chiefs.
