The Vikings might be losing the chance to hire interim OC Kevin Stefanski as their full-time guy, as reports state that he is on his way to Cleveland, where he’s one of two finalists for the job as Browns new head coach.
The report, from Ian Rapoport of NFL.com says that it’s down to Stefanski and current Browns OC Freddie Kitchens, who interviewed with the Browns yesterday in Berea.
Stefanski was promoted from quarterbacks coach when John DeFilippo was fired with three games to play in the season.
Minnesota has an interesting decision to make, as his contract is up today and according to Pro Football Talk “he’s one of the options that the Vikings are considering for the coordinator position in 2019. That would obviously turn out to be a moot point if things go his way in Cleveland and it sounds like we should find out soon which route the Browns will take.”
The teams’ offense did perform better in the last three games with Stefanski as OC, as they scored 41, 27 and 10 points in going 2-1 in their last three outings.
