Current List Of Vikings Head Coach Candidates


It seems as though the Vikings are going to explore many options before they decide on who the new head coach of the team will be.  It is a good sign for Minnesota fans that the team isn’t going to settle for one of the first candidates that they interview.  Word on the street is that the team is looking for a disciplinarian for their new head coach, which would be a stark contrast from the previous person in that position, Leslie Frazier.

Here is the current list of known candidates for the job according to 1500 ESPN:

  • Todd Bowles (Cardinals defensive coordinator)
  • Dan Quinn (Seahawks defensive coordinator)
  • Sep 8, 2013; Charlotte, NC, USA; Seattle Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell on the sidelines in the fourth quarter. The Seahawks defeated the Panthers 12-7 at Bank of America Stadium. Mandatory Credit: Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

    Darrell Bevell (Seahawks offensive coordinator)

  • Adam Gase (Broncos offensive coordinator)
  • Jack Del Rio (Broncos defensive coordinator)
  • Ray Horton (Browns defensive coordinator)
  • Jay Gruden (Bengals offensive coordinator)
  • Mike Zimmer (Bengals defensive coordinator)
  • Greg Roman (49ers offensive coordinator)
  • Ken Whisenhunt (Chargers offensive coordinator)

    Ray Horton is a terrible idea. Mike zimmer or Dan Quinn. Mike zimmer because he’s tough as nails and I think that mindset would be amazing in Minnesota. Now Dan Quinn would be awesome to because of his defensive mind

  • Jarrett

    ZIMMER all the way! We need a tough coach in Minnesota.

  • Brad Spiner

    Most appealing: Mike Zimmer.
    Terrible Idea: Bevell (Does that question even need to be asked?)

  • Redbear

    Brian Billick

  • Mark Garcia

    Zimmer to Vikes

  • Bobby Gedde

    Mike Zimmer!
