According to a New York Post report, Vikings owner Zygi Wilf has contacted Bill Parcells about running the team.

Parcells, 71, has had talks with the Saints about coming out of retirement to coach the team for a year while Sean Payton serves his suspension. According to the Post, Parcells told the Saints that Wilf offered the former Patriots coach to “name his price” to oversee Minnesota’s football operations and run the team.

The Vikings were 3-13 last season under Leslie Frazier, who replaced Brad Childress in 2010.

Parcells has a 172-130-1 record in 19 seasons with the Giants, Patriots, Jets and Cowboys. He won two Super Bowl titles with the Giants and got the Patriots to the title game once. He last coached in 2006 with the Cowboys. He served as executive vice president of football operation for the Dolphins from 2008-10.
