ESPN 1500 Twin Cities reports the Vikings did approach Bill Parcells, but it "didn't happen recently" and the sides are no longer talking.
The St. Paul Pioneer-Press and NFL Network's Jason LaCanfora both confirm ESPN 1500 Twin Cities' account that Parcells will not be joining the Vikings. Owner Zygi Wilf has been a fan of the Big Tuna dating back to the dominant 1980s Giants squads, but the rebuilding Vikings have little appeal to a 71-year-old coach. The Saints are "still in the mix," reports LaCanfora. The original New York Post report screams of a leverage ploy by Parcells to squeeze more money out of New Orleans.
