Kevin O’Connell: Next Head Coach of the Minnesota Vikings

SB Nation


Article Summary:

Well, after the ramp up in anticipation regarding Jim Harbaugh as the possible next head coach of the Vikings, news came out first that Harbaugh had informed the University of Michigan that he would remain head coach of the Wolverines, and later that the Vikings had informed the other finalists, other than Kevin O’Connell, that they were out of the running. Offensive line coach Phil Rauscher worked with O’Connell in Washington, and both Adam Thielen and Justin Jefferson are pushing for wide receivers coach Keenan McCardell to be retained, and I suspect those voices will be listened to.

On the younger coach front, Patriots’ ILB coach Jerod Mayo, 35, a former first-round pick at linebacker and well respected in only three years of coaching, could be a solid candidate.

Presumably the Vikings, and O’Connell, have an idea of who might fill the coaching void defensively, but we’ll have to stay tuned to find out who is selected to fill all the remaining coaching positions.
