The Minnesota Vikings are in need of a full-time offensive coordinator under Mike Zimmer yet again with interim candidate Kevin Stefanski’s contract with the team set to expire on Tuesday. He is very much in the conversation for the job, but is receiving interest for other opportunities across the league, meaning the Vikings need to flesh out a list of their own of guys to consider.
If Stefanski does not wind up being the full-time guy, the next coordinator will be the fifth in Zimmer’s six seasons with the team, which leaves little to the imagination as to why there has not been a stable and consistent offense in place in the Twin Cities. Despite some of their flaws, it should be one of the league’s most attractive openings this coaching cycle with a franchise quarterback in place in Kirk Cousins and playmakers all over the field, such as running back Dalvin Cook, wide receivers Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs, tight end Kyle Rudolph and more.
Here is a look at the list of names that could be in contention for the job and fit for what the Vikings are looking for out of their offense, which is balance and the ability to score more points than they did in 2018.
