On Saturday, the Vikings made the decision to deny the Giants permission to interview QBs coach Kevin Stefanski for their offensive coordinator job (NFLTR).
A source tells Jordan Raanan of ESPN that the Eagles could also prevent the Giants from hiring RBs coach Duce Staley, given that their offensive coordinator Frank Reich is in the running for the Colts’ job and QBs coach John DeFilippo has already accepted the Vikings’ offensive coordinator position.
With this in mind, Raanan says that his money is on the Giants hiring former Seahawks OC Darrell Bevell to run their offense.
It’s worth mentioning that Bevell has also been linked to the Colts’ offensive coordinator job.
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.
