Vikings block Giants from interviewing QB coach to become OC

Kevin Stefanski

Vikings could promote Kevin Stefanski to OC, play keep-away with Giants' top target

However, Minnesota will not let Stefanski go easy and, in fact, won't let him go at all unless they are able to hire Philadelphia Eagles quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo.

The Vikings feel good enough about Stefanski that they want him to remain in their organization-but it could be a matter of them seeing DeFilippo as readier for the job since he had been an OC in the past, and Stefanski has not. I think what's really good about Kevin, he's a communicator - so he communicates with me, we communicate to the quarterbacks and try to stay on the same page with them and Coach (Mike) Zimmer and what we're all thinking, and he's very organized.

Shurmur was hired as head coach of the New York Giants on January 22.

Super Bowl brain drain underway in Philadelphia. There have been times in my career I've had to pick myself up and dust myself off.

One major hurdle-Minnesota promoting him to replace Shurmur as the team's offensive coordinator-has been cleared, with ESPN's Adam Schefter reporting that the Vikings have chose to hire Philadelphia's quarterbacks coach, John DeFilippo, to take over as the team's playcaller. "Nonetheless, if the Vikings were going to tell Stefanski they didn't think he was good enough to be their coordinator, it is a slap to now make him stick around in a lesser position".

DeFilippo gets a two-year deal with #Vikings. It certainly has been the most nagging spot for Spielman, who has been here through Tarvaris Jackson, Gus Frerotte, Brett Favre, Donovan McNabb, Christian Ponder, Matt Cassel, Josh Freeman, Teddy Bridgewater, Sam Bradford and Case Keenum.

Heading into the playoffs, Keenum has nothing but praise for the Shurmur/Stefanski duo.

The Minnesota Vikings pulled a power move this weekend by not allowing their quarterbacks coach to leave them this offseason as they already saw their offensive coordinator do. "We talked about it last night: It has to be a collaborative effort, something that we all agree on". I've had some experience in this situation in trying to find your quarterback to lead your football team. "So we're going to take pieces from other places I've been, take pieces from Philadelphia and at the same time, obviously there are a lot of good things that the Minnesota Vikings did past year that we're going to continue to do".
