Vikings hiring Eagles QB coach John DeFilippo as offensive coordinator

He has performed well with Minnesota-well enough to be considered for the Vikings' OC job (that was filled with John DeFilippo last week), yet now he must remain as quarterbacks coach with the team that gave him a minor position on the staff at age 23 and helped mold him into a potential offensive coordinator (one step from away from head coach) at age 35. The Eagles likely will not want to see Staley - their running backs coach - leave for the Giants, an NFC East rival.

Kevin Stefanski is in high demand this offseason and will ultimately land a job as an offensive coordinator.

Alex Marvez of The Sporting News reports that the race for Stefanski is down to the Giants and Vikings, and that a decision could be upcoming.

Now Shurmur might actually get to bring a key staff member with him from Minnesota.

It obviously wasn't Shurmur's best coaching job, but it also wasn't anything that should cause trepidation regarding his ability to do a good job in NY.

Shurmur was hired as head coach of the New York Giants on January 22. But that seems unlikely to happen now with Frank Reich being named the Indianapolis Colts next head coach. Stefanski's title was assistant to the head coach through the 2008 season and this meant taking care of a variety of jobs. He, along with Shurmur, turned Case Keenum from a career journeyman into one of the NFL's best quarterbacks last season.

Stefanski was among the candidates who had interviewed for the offensive coordinator post with Minnesota before DeFilippo got the job.

Bevell and Shurmur both coached under former Vikings head coach and Eagles offensive coordinator Brad Childress.

One game isn't almost enough to dash the hopes that Shurmur could breathe life into a Giant team that shockingly underachieved.

Reich has reportedly reached out to the Chargers seeking permission to talk with wide receivers coach Nick Sirianni, with whom he worked a few years back.

"How many guys can say they participated in a Super Bowl parade in the morning and became one of 32 play-callers in the National Football League that night?"

Try as the Vikings might, it's not feasible to expect sustainable success if the QB turnstile keeps spinning at the rate it has during Spielman's 11 seasons, when seven QBs have taken opening-day snaps and five - Jackson, Favre, Joe Webb, Bridgewater and Keenum - have started playoff games.
