The Vikings have at long last announce the coaching staff. Several of the names already had been rumored and other teams had announced hiring former Vikings assistants, but this is the first time the team confirmed the full staff.

Here is a list, from the Vikings' press release. Notably, they decided to retain special teams coordinator Mike Priefer, after former punter Chris Kluwe fired serious allegations of bigotry toward Priefer. (Priefer has denied the allegations, but Kluwe has lawyered up and the Vikings say they're conducting an independent review.)
