Minnesota Vikings deny Giants of Kevin Stefanski interview

  • Vikings could promote Kevin Stefanski to OC, play keep-away with Giants' top target

Sporting News reported earlier this week that Stefanski was Shurmur's preferred choice for offensive coordinator, but the Vikings would not release him from his contract unless they were able to hire Eagles quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo as their next OC. Some names that have been mentioned in recent weeks as possibilities are former Seattle Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell and Eagles running backs coach Duce Staley, who also has a previous working relationship with Shurmur.

Shurmur will call plays for the Giants on gamedays but he wants a trusted offensive coordinator for game-planning.

Hours later, the Minnesota Vikings handed him the keys to their offense.

The SPD was at a record low of 16.5 percent, barely ahead of the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD). In a cartoon on Tuesday, the Sueddeutsche Zeitung daily showed Nahles with a whip riding an SPD snail.

Now Shurmur might actually get to bring a key staff member with him from Minnesota.

The Giants have continued to work to build the rest of the coaching staff that includes looking for an offensive coordinator. The 39-year-old DeFilippo is the third offensive coordinator Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer has had in five seasons on the job. But that seems unlikely to happen now with Frank Reich being named the Indianapolis Colts next head coach. One thing is certain: Things can't get any worse than they were during the Ben McAdoo era.

Shurmur said on January 18 at the Vikings' Winter Park facility, when the Daily News traveled north to speak with the Giants' next head coach, that Stefanski has been "very patient with his career". He has yet to hire an offensive coordinator or a quarterbacks coach.

PM Modi keeps driving looking at rear-view mirror, says Rahul Gandhi
The BJP on Sunday dared Congress President Rahul Gandhi to compare the achievements during UPA's 10-year rule at the Centre to that of the present NDA government.

The Eagles will reportedly promote assistant quarterbacks coach Press Taylor to quarterbacks coach as DeFilippo's successor.

Wentz was an NFL MVP award contender with 33 touchdown passes in 13 games in his second season in the league in 2017, until tearing the ACL in his left knee. I think he's always aspired to coach the quarterback, did an excellent job this year. He was with the team for both Super Bowl XLII and XLVI. They could block the Giants' interest even without that scenario unfolding, given the two teams' status as division rivals.

Reich has reportedly reached out to the Chargers seeking permission to talk with wide receivers coach Nick Sirianni, with whom he worked a few years back.

Trudeau said in November he had called out Duterte over "human rights, the rule of law, and specifically extrajudicial killings". It became an issue of human rights, as Canada is afraid the 412s would be used against Filipino citizens.

As the Giants' head coach, Shurmur will be the offensive and quarterback authority.
