The Vikings will reportedly hire John DeFilippo as their new offensive coordinator according to ESPN's Adam Schefter on Thursday. Former offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur became the Giants head coach on January 26, the day Mike Zimmer began conducting interviews for his replacement down at his ranch in Northern Kentucky.

DeFilippo's one-on-one relationship with Wentz was considered so vital to the former Bison's development that when the New York Jets asked to interview the rising star for their vacant offensive coordinator position in 2017 Jeffrey Lurie and company outright denied their request, and Wentz blossomed into a legitimate MVP candidate as a result. Reich has emerged as a candidate for the Colts head coaching job, however, so it's possible the Eagles' Super Bowl success could carve a deeper dent into the staff before the end of the month. After Wentz went down, veteran quarterback Nick Foles stepped in and won all three playoff games he started, going on to be named Super Bowl MVP last Sunday in their win over the New England Patriots. If the Vikings allow Stefanski to leave, it would mean DeFilippo would likely need to find a quarterbacks coach - the first of several significant decisions he'd need to make at the position.

He started his National Football League coaching career in 2005 with the Giants.

DeFilippo's first interview with the organization was today.

DeFilippo served as the Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator in 2015, and also called plays at San Jose State in 2011. General manager Rick Spielman said last week that the next OC will play a role in determining which quarterback will lead the Vikings next season.

One of the hottest names to be considered for a head coaching job this offseaon is DeFilippo, whose work with Wentz and the Raiders' David Carr has been widely recognized.
