Vikings Tab John DeFilippo for OC

Vikings Tab John DeFilippo for OC

In his 12 seasons of coaching in the NFL, DeFilippo has made four playoff appearances - New York Giants (2005, 06), New York Jets (2009) and Philadelphia Eagles (2017). We feel John will have good chemistry with our team and we are all eager to get to work.

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 Minnesota Vikings officially named Eagles quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo as their new offensive coordinator. Staley previously interviewed with the Eagles for their open head coaching job after Chip Kelly was sacked, and has recently gotten sniffs as an offensive coordinator elsewhere.

He is averaging 16.8 points per game while shooting 38.6 percent from three-point range, giving the Cavs another shooter. Crowder averaged 8.6 points after arriving in the offseason deal in which Kyrie Irving was traded to the Boston Celtics.


Wentz was coming off a rookie year with the Philadelphia Eagles that saw him throw just 16 touchdowns, 14 interceptions, and average just over 235 yards per game.

DeFilippo wasn't sharing which names he thought make sense for the Vikings, but did say he thinks athleticism is important for a quarterback to succeed in today's NFL. DeFilippo helped Foles earn MVP honors in both the NFC Championship Game and in Super Bowl LII. DeFilippo might have gotten a head coaching job if not for the Eagles' Super Bowl run complicating teams' interest in him.

It's time to go to work (again).

). DeFilippo then helped direct Foles to 971 passing yards (13th most all-time in a single National Football League postseason), six touchdowns, only one interception and a 115.7 passer rating in three playoff games.

Meanwhile, offensive coordinator Frank Reich was considered to be a candidate for the Titans before they chose Mike Vrabel as their coach.

A source said Eagles running backs coach Duce Staley would then become the frontrunner for New York's offensive coordinator vacancy.

But unfortunately for the Eagles, the team can't block DeFilippo this time. It seems Groh would likely be interested in the quarterbacks job. It's even possible that Zimmer and Vikings general manager Rick Spielman brought DeFilippo on board so that hope for Bridgewater can become something more of a reality. In his past, he has coached Mark Sanchez and Derek Carr to early success, along with Wentz and Nick Foles this past season.

Soon enough, all those questions and more will be answered, and we'll eventually get an up-close look at DeFilippo's philosophy in action.
