Vikings' Mike Zimmer 'excited' to get started with coordinator John DeFilippo

Multiple reports say Stefanski is in line to rejoin Shurmur and become the Giants' offensive coordinator.

On Thursday night, it was reported that Philadelphia Eagles quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo was hired by the Minnesota Vikings to be their offensive coordinator.

For anybody wondering why DeFilippo would leave the Eagles for the Vikings right after winning the Super Bowl, the difference in their offensive coordinator jobs is that Doug Pederson calls the plays and oversees the offense in Philadelphia, whereas Mike Zimmer will give him the figurative keys to the vehicle. Taylor joined the Eagles staff under Chip Kelly in 2013 but has continued to impress Pederson and could either replace DeFilippo or stand as a potential option to fill in at wide receivers coach if Mike Groh takes the quarterbacks coach job. Foles was named MVP of Super Bowl LII and had 725 yards with six touchdowns in the Eagles' playoff wins over the Vikings and New England Patriots.

The Vikings made a conscious choice to go outside of the organization with this hire but must feel assured that the continuity they built on offense in 2017 won't dissipate any time soon.

And it's not the first time Trump has placed more weight on denials than allegations of sexual misconduct or assault. Mr Porter's ex-wives, Colbie Holderness and Jennifer Willoughby, both accuse him of physical and emotional abuse.

DeFilippo demurred when asked which quarterback he's coached - from Derek Carr and Carson Wentz to Nick Foles and Josh McCown - best epitomized what he's looking for in his offense.

Eagles offensive coordinator Frank Reich is scheduled to interview with the Indianapolis Colts today (Friday) to be their new head coach.

With DeFilippo as his offensive coordinator in 2015, Manziel showed a tremendous amount of improvement from what he did during his rookie season with the Cleveland Browns in 2014. The team could keep impending free agents Case Keenum, Teddy Bridgewater, or Sam Bradford, or they can target a free agent like Kirk Cousins. Despite only playing in 13 games before suffering a season-ending ACL injury, Wentz finished the season with 33 touchdowns, the most in franchise history, and a 101.9 passer rating, the third-highest in franchise history. "It's all game-specific drill work and he really does a nice job preparing the guys, the quarterbacks, during the week". DeFilippo helped Wentz set a team and all-time National Football League rookie record with 379 completions.

Soon enough, all those questions and more will be answered, and we'll eventually get an up-close look at DeFilippo's philosophy in action.
