It's starting to look like a complete overhaul for Mike Zimmer's first coaching staff with the Minnesota Vikings as another assistant under the former regime landed elsewhere on Friday.
Former linebackers coach Fred Pagac and the Buffalo Bills agreed to a deal for Pagac to coach the same position group out in New York.
From the Bills website:
"Buffalo added a pair of coaches to its staff, as Pepper Johnson (Defensive Line) and Fred Pagac (Linebackers) agreed to terms with the club on Friday night."
Per ESPN.com, Pagac was one of four Vikings assistants under former coach Leslie Frazier that were the top candidates to interview for Zimmer's staff, including offensive line coach Jeff Davidson, receivers coach George Stewart and special teams coach Mike Priefer.
Pagac joins a growing list of Vikings assistants, who still had one more season on contract, but are moving on. Among them are former offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave, defensive coordinator Alan Williams, defensive backs coach Joe Woods, quarterbacks coach Craig Johnson, running backs coach James Saxon, defensive line coach Brendan Daly and defensive assistant Mike Singletary.
