Could the Minnesota Vikings be looking to a former Brad Childress assistant as their next head coach?
Only hours after firing Leslie Frazier on Monday morning, a report surfaced that the Vikings had asked to interview Seattle Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell. Bevell, of course, served as Childress' offensive coordinator with the Vikings from 2006 through 2010.
Bevell remained on for the final six games of the 2010 season after Childress was fired but was let go by Frazier following that year and replaced by Bill Musgrave.
Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reported that the Vikings requested to talk not only to Bevell but also to Seahawks defensive coordinator Dan Quinn. The Cleveland Browns also appear to be interested in Quinn.
Bevell and Quinn could both interview for jobs this week because the Seahawks earned a bye as the first seed in the NFC playoffs.
Bevell and Quinn wouldn't be the only coaching duo from a successful team on the Vikings' radar.
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports the Vikings are looking at Denver Broncos defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio and offensive coordinator Adam Gase and that an official inquiry has been made on Gase.
Del Rio, a former Vikings linebacker, and Gase also would be able to talk to teams this week because Denver is the top seed in the AFC and is off this week. Gase, however, told the Denver Post that he won't talk to teams until after the Broncos' season is over.
Meanwhile, it also was reported the Vikings want to interview Arizona Cardinals defensive coordinator Todd Bowles, as do the Browns.
