The Minnesota Vikings love keeping it in the family. It would make sense for the Kubiak bloodline to stay in control of the team’s offense, but the job shouldn’t be immediately considered his just because his father is such an offensive mind.

At 33 years old, he lacks the experience that some other candidates might have. He has only been coaching in the NFL since 2013, but was part of the Vikings as an assistant wide receivers and offensive quality control coach for two seasons.

Following that, he went back to the college level to work with receivers at Kansas until joining his dad in Denver as a quarterbacks coach and offensive assistant until coming back in Minnesota with his dad in 2019.

The thin resume could be a great thing or it could be a problem. His familiarity with the team and time spent with Mike Zimmer could all be positives, but the lack of experience makes him a bit of a risk.
