The Minnesota Vikings apparently had good reason to wait until the Philadelphia Eagles won the Super Bowl to interview quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo. On Thursday night, the Vikings hired DeFilippo as their new offensive coordinator.
DeFilippo replaced Pat Shurmur, who was hired earlier this offseason by the New York Giants. The former Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator helped the Eagles to a championship despite losing their starting quarterback Carson Wentz.
With the hiring of DeFilippo, it’s possible Shurmur could hire Vikings QB coach Kevin Stefanski as his offensive coordinator.
Vikings landed John DeFilippo as the new offensive coordinator as ESPN first reported. Vikes QB coach Kevin Stefanski likely headed to NYG
