Sounds like about 8 coaches will be out of a job after this week.

If the Vikings look externally, I say possibly jay gruden if he gets fired or John defillipo from the eagles. Not a big fan of Hue Jackson. If they want to promote from within maybe QB coach kevin stefanski. He should know the system and has been with the Vikings a while coaching QBs, RBs and TEs.

Lions, Cardinals seek permission to interview #Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur for head coaching position. twincities.com/2018/01/01/lio…

Cardinals could be looking for a QB.

Lions, Cardinals have permission to interview Pat Shurmur for head position. Mike Zimmer said: "If he gets requested to interview, I'll let him interview. ... I can give him certain days (teams) can come and do that ... You can request they come here... so that's what we'll do"

Yep, same here. I think it is just a distraction to the team.

I thought they couldn't. Isn't that one of the reasons supposedly that Childress was never hired until we hired him?

The Devil whispered in the Viking's ear, "There's a storm coming." The Viking replied, "I am the storm." ‪#‎SKOL2017 #BringitHome‬

Vikings have to give permission during season
I believe ...

After season I am not sure if contract
matters or not.

#Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur will interview with the Lions and the Cardinals for head positions on Thursday in the Twin Cities. He plans to interview with the Bears but that one hasn't been scheduled yet. Updated story. twincities.com/2018/01/01/tea…



Replying to @GoesslingStrib
Source says three teams have now requested interviews with Pat Shurmur: the Bears, Cardinals and Lions.

I'd hate to see Shurmur go, but he's deserved this. I hope he lands a head coaching gig.

What do you guys think about Jim Caldwell as a replacement?

Offseason Goal: Draft durable, tough, intelligent offensive lineman who are dependable technicians and avoid penalties aka drive killers.

If the Vikings lose Shurmur, Zim could bring back Norv Turner. They have the O Line in place now.

No to Caldwell and no to Norv. Both would be a step back or in the wrong direction..either way...no for me.

I'd be more interested in Caldwell's OC, Jim Bob Cooter.
