From some website after a google search:
Parcells also found time to address the burning question of how he got his nickname: "Big Tuna."
"I think it goes back to my first time with the Patriots," said Parcells, who was New England's linebackers coach in 1980.
"There was an old commercial from Starkist with Charlie the Starkist Tuna, so my players were trying to con me on something one time, and I said, 'You must think I'm Charlie the Tuna,' you know, a sucker, and that's kind of how it started.
"We started with it that year and they used to wear those little tuna helmets, you know, tuna pictures on their helmets. That's where it all started."

I remember fondly those Charlie The Tuna commercials. Parcels is definitely a take charge kind of guy. A very strict disciplinarian, it can a times be very difficult to get along with someone like that. He doesn't expect anything from his players that he's not willing to do himself. On the funny side his physique is a lot that of Charlie the tuna!
