Bob McGinn reports that the Packers have granted permission for Joe Philbin to interview with the Vikings for their OL coach job.
Philbin interviewed for the Packers’ head-coaching job before they hired Matt LaFleur.
Philbin, 57, began his NFL coaching career with the Packers back in 2003 as their assistant offensive line coach and managed to work his way up to offensive coordinator before departing for the Dolphins’ head-coaching job in 2012.
After four seasons in Miami, the Dolphins fired Philbin and he later took a job with the Colts as their assistant head coach & offensive line coach. The Packers brought him back as their offensive coordinator last year and he was elevated to interim head coach after Mike McCarthy was fired.
During his three-plus years in Miami, Philbin led the Dolphins to a record of 24-28 (46.2 percent) and was never able to produce a winning record. The Packers went 2-2 during his four games as interim head coach.
