Coaching Staff Update

Posted by Mike Wobschall on January 17, 2011 – 8:49 am

Many of you had coaching staff questions for this week’s Monday Morning Mailbag, so I wanted to address the issue here on the blog with a couple points…

– We haven’t had a lot of updates and that’s because there haven’t been many developments, at least not many developments that the team wished to make public. There are times when it’s best to keep developments in-house, but when it’s appropriate to disclose developments you’ll be able to find updates right here on

– It was reported that former Broncos Head Coach Josh McDaniels interviewed in Minnesota for a position on the staff, but there’s been no word on how that interview went or where McDaniels is in his decision-making process. McDaniels has also interviewed with the St. Louis Rams.

– Jason La Canfora of NFL Network reports that the Vikings and Mike Singletary are in talks to bring the former 49ers Head Coach and Chicago Bears LB (he was teammates with Leslie Frazier in Chicago) on board as an assistant coach. I have not spoken with anyone to confirm this report.

– Expect many NFL teams to finalize some positions on their coaching staffs this week because the Senior Bowl begins this weekend in Alabama. Coaching staffs from across the league attend the Senior Bowl each year as part of their pre-draft preparation process.

– The only official coaching staff changes made by the Vikings so far were the parting of ways with QBs coach Kevin Rogers and OL coaches Pat Morris and Jim Hueber.
