Vikings Want to Talk to Eagles OC John DeFilippo About Coming to Minnesota

The Vikings’ search for a new offensive coordinator will extend at least one more week, according to General Manager Rick Spielman, who wants to interview “maybe one or two” more candidates, Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports.

They want to interview Eagles quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo after Philadelphia plays in Sunday’s Super Bowl at U.S. Bank Stadium, a league source told the Star Tribune. However, the same source believes DeFilippo is leaning toward staying in Philadelphia.

Complicating the hire is the Vikings’ uncertainty at quarterback. Last season the Vikings had the 10th-ranked scoring offense under Pat Shurmur, now the coach of the New York Giants.

“Whoever the offensive coordinator is, part of the process is do you blow it up and start from a whole new system?” Spielman said. “Or do you continue to build on what we’ve built over the past year and a half? So those are the decisions Coach Zim will have to make.”
