The Vikings may have stability in their coaching staff but even they are not immune to small amounts of turnover.

Today, coach Mike Zimmer confirmed that assistant WR coach Klint Kubiak is leaving the Vikings to take a job with the Kansas Jayhawks.

Kubiak joined the Vikings in 2013 and was one of the small number of Leslie Frazier coaches who remained when Mike Zimmer took over.

The son of former NFL head coach Gary Kubiak, Klint spent three years on the Texas A&M staff before joining the Vikings.

Kubiak’s new role with Kansas has not been specified but media speculation is that he will be their wide receivers coach.

When asked about any more potential turnover on his staff, Mike Zimmer said he does not anticipate major changes.

There has been speculation that the Vikings might move on from offensive line coach Jeff Davidson, another holdover from Frazier’s staff. The offensive line did not distinguish itself in 2014 but, in Davidson’s defense, injury did play a big part in that.

If you’re wondering about the potential for some team that needs a head coach to pluck Norv Turner away…I think you can sleep easy knowing that Norv will be with the Vikings as offensive coordinator for awhile.

One front office name that has come up in speculation is assistant GM George Paton. It’s believed that the New York Jets are interested in looking at Paton as a replacement for the fired John Idzik.
