Vikings hire Brian Pariani as tight ends coach

Post by Cliff » Tue Jan 15, 2019 2:42 pm

The Vikings also announced they hired Brian Pariani as tight ends coach.

Pariani has more than 20 years experience coaching tight ends, most of it with Gary Kubiak.

From 1994-2016, Pariani worked every season alongside Kubiak, with the exception of the 2005 season, when Pariani was at Syracuse. Pariani previously coached the tight ends position with Denver from 1995-2004 and again from 2015-16.

1. Previous experience

Pariani also served as a tight ends coach for the Broncos from 1995-2004, for the Texans (2006-13) and for the Ravens (2014). In 2005, Pariani entered the collegiate world as Syracuse’s offensive coordinator for one season.

Pariani got his start in the NFL as a scout for the 49ers in 1990 before serving as an offensive assistant in San Francisco from 1991-94.

2. Connected to Kubiak

Pariani has a longstanding connection with Gary Kubiak, whom the Vikings announced as their new assistant head coach/offensive advisor Monday.

In fact, the two worked together for all but one season (2005) from 1994, when they each were a part of the 49ers offensive coaching staff, through 2016.


3. Pursuing a fifth Lombardi trophy

Pariani has four Super Bowl rings – three with an AFC team and one with an NFC team.

In his final season in San Francisco, the 49ers defeated the Chargers 49-26 in Super Bowl XXIX.

Pariani was with the Broncos when they won back-to-back Lombardi Trophies over the Packers (XXXII) and Falcons (XXXIII). He returned to Denver in 2015, and the Broncos went on to defeat the Panthers 24-10 in Super Bowl 50.

I'm guessing Rick Dennison will soon be the new OL coach too.

:lol: I like to climb out on those sturdy limbs.

I'm also guessing Kirk Cousins will play QB for the Vikings next year and Danielle Hunter will play defensive end.

Not so quick on Dennison.. You at least have to look at Guglielmo now that Indy fired him. It's good to have options.

It's Dennison, Kubiak literally left Denver because they wouldn't hire Dennison.
