NBC Sports is now reporting that the Wild have reached out to Guy Boucher and Marc Crawford.
Both coaches have NHL coaching experience but most recently have spent time in the Swiss League. Crawford has said he's open to accepting an assistant position if not given the lead.
Boucher interviewed for two NHL positions last year and was fired in October while coaching in the Swiss league. Former Wild coach Jacque Lemiere endorsed Boucher during an interview with Sirius XM Radio, according to NHL broadcasters Steve Kouleas.
