According to Chris Tomasson, two potential candidates for the Vikings’ offensive coordinator job worth watching in the coming weeks are former Seahawks OC Darrell Bevell and QBs coach Kevin Stefanski.
Last we heard regarding the Vikings’ offensive coordinator job, Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reported that Minnesota could target former Broncos OC Mike McCoy and former Giants HC Ben McAdoo as offensive coordinator replacements to Pat Shurmur.
Bevell is becoming an increasingly popular coordinator candidate and reportedly has an interview lined up with the Cardinals.
Bevell, 48, began his NFL coaching career with the Packers as an assistant quarterbacks coach in 2000. He eventually worked his way up to QBs coach before being hired by the Vikings as their offensive coordinator in 2006.
After five years in Minnesota, Bevell signed on with the Seahawks for the 2011 season and spent the past seven years in Seattle before he was recently fired.
In 2017, the Seahawks’ offense was No. 15 in total yards, No. 11 in points scored, No. 23 in yards rushing and No. 14 in passing offense.
