Vikings Reportedly Interested in Bill Parcells Running Their Football Operations

For an old man, Bill Parcells is in high demand.

According to a report in the New York Post, the Minnesota Vikings want Bill Parcells to come in and “run the show” for the franchise. Vikings owner Zygi Wilf reportedly told Parcells to name his price in order to get him to Minnesota to run the Vikings.

There are a lot of questions with a story like this, but the one that pops into my mind is the timing of it all. Most NFL hires are already done at this point, usually by early February. The New Orleans Saints are also currently interested in hiring Parcells, but that’s a unique situation because Sean Payton is expected to start his suspension sometime soon.
