Bill Parcells has suddenly become a hot commodity again in the NFL.
In an off-season that has already featured more than its share of unexpected twists, here's yet another one: Vikings owner Zygi Wilf is going hard after the 70-year-old former coach and executive to "run the show" in Minnesota, according to the New York Post.
Parcells, whose last NFL job as executive vice president of football operations with the Miami Dolphins ended midseason in 2010, has been rumored to be a candidate for the New Orleans Saints' interim coaching job if his close friend Sean Payton's one-year suspension is upheld.
Apparently once word got out that Parcells may be considering another comeback, at least one other team started getting ideas of its own. According to an unnamed source quoted by the Post, Parcells revealed at a dinner with close friends in Florida that Wilf had to told him to "name his price" to coach the Vikings as well as run the team's football operations.
