It isn't, those are just names that have come up in the press and here on the board. Saints assistant head coach/tight ends coach Dan Campbell has been rumored to be in the mix for the job and so has Texans quarterbacks coach Sean Ryan.

If that is the case, then they should either promote someone currently on the staff or broaden the search and try to find a the next big things vs. one of these re-treads.

As I said before, this roster is a huge opportunity. They should have the pick of the litter and they should act like it.
I dont think its limited at all. They have already expressed interest in a handful of candidates. I highly, highly doubt they are just going to choose the "least bad" of the 3

Y'know, I really don't think I'd want the Vikings to sign Brees, mainly because the last time we signed a 39-year-old future HOFer, it didn't end up that well.

But it WAS interesting how Brees and several Vikings were looking awfully chummy during Pro Bowl week. And that Brees tossed a TD pass to Thielen. And several nice balls to Kyle Rudolph. Instant chemistry?

No. Forget it. Not gonna happen.

Dan Campbell interviews with the Vikings is today. I think he is the last on the list.

A source close to the situation doesn't believe #Vikings will make announcement on the offensive coordinator they will hire until next week after Super Bowl. Interviewed have been Darrell Bevell Kevin Stefanski Sean Ryan & Dan Campbell, the last one meeting with Mike Zimmer today


Well that sucks....I was hoping we would hear something this week.

Just seen an interesting comment from Adam Schefter:
Vikings would like to talk with Eagles' QB coach John DeFilippo about their OC job but cannot do so until 10 days after Philadelphia's season ends, which would be Feb 14, per league source. Right now Vikings appear willing to wait
It looks like it's complicated because he's a QB coach - therefore normally the Eagles could just deny us access to him (as apparently they did to teams last year) but as he's in the last season of his contract we can wait the ten days post-season.

Probably a good hire, but also probably another one and done before taking a HC job. I hate how gimmicky NFL offenses have become though. Its so frustrating to watch how genuinely helpless good NFL defenses are when matched up against an offense that efficiently runs all kinds of rub routes and RPOs and hurry up offense etc. It works so well that its obviously the way of the future as long as defenses aren't allowed to punish offensive players to keep things honest. I guess its the new normal, and DeFilippo, given his background, should clearly knows how to run it.

How is it that teams can talk to Shurmur before our championship game but we have to wait 10 days after their season is over?

They likely talked to him during the prior window when Shurmur was being interviewed. We didn’t talk to anyone during that window because we didn’t know we wouldn’t have an OC.
