Vikings Tap Eagles QB Coach DeFilippo For OC

For anybody wondering why DeFilippo would leave the Eagles for the Vikings right after winning the Super Bowl, the difference in their offensive coordinator jobs is that Doug Pederson calls the plays and oversees the offense in Philadelphia, whereas Mike Zimmer will give him the figurative keys to the auto.

The Vikings had objective in waiting until after the Super Bowl to make a hire.

The Giants are now the front-runners for their top target for offensive coordinator so it may just be a matter of time before he's brought in. 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.

Shurmur and Stefanski first met with the Eagles 2005, when the former was quarterbacks coach and latter was an operations intern. (He) barely sleeps... (He's giving us) fundamentals, giving us the game plan, giving us all our checks, extremely detailed. I'm grateful for him.

"We are very excited to add John to our staff, " Zimmer said in a statement. He's done an fantastic job this year. But the great thing about our team and our coaching staff is, they work so well together and they do it all together.

DeFilippo, who turns 40 in April, was one of the hottest coordinator candidates of the offseason. Wentz's 3,782 passing yards marked the fourth-highest total in single-season team history and National Football League rookie history.

Based on his coaching history, it would be a safe assumption to make that DeFilippo may want to work with a younger signal caller for the upcoming season with the Vikings. The Vikings had a vacancy at their OC spot after Pat Shurmur left to become the head coach of the New York Giants at season's end.

Now that the Vikings have their offensive coordinator in place, the focus will soon shift toward finding their quarterback for 2018. In the coming weeks, he'll play a role in determining the franchise's QB for next season - a move that will strongly determine the success or failure of the Vikings making another run toward the Super Bowl. But the way that we structure everything is that everyone has a part of that process in the decision, and myself, coach Zimmer, our scouting department and all of our coaches. "We feel John will have good chemistry with our team and are all eager to get to work".
