Vikings block Kevin Stefanski from going to Giants

Vikings quarterbacks coach Kevin Stefanski will be an National Football League offensive coordinator in 2018.

The New York Giants showed interest in bringing in Kevin Stefanski to be their new offensive coordinator, but Minnesota has reportedly denied an interview that would put him working as a member of Pat Shurmur's staff.

Pat Shurmur the new Giants head coach, worked side by side with Stefanski in Minnesota and the thought was that he was the leader to take the OC job in NY. In those three games, including a 38-7 victory over the Vikings in the NFC championship game, Foles threw for 971 yards, six touchdowns and only one interception for a 115.7 passer rating.

"The 2018 United States midterm elections are a potential target for Russian influence operations". Trump has steadfastly denied any collusion took place.

It obviously wasn't Shurmur's best coaching job, but it also wasn't anything that should cause trepidation regarding his ability to do a good job in NY. Shurmur will handle the play-calling duties, but Stefanski and Shurmur clearly had developed a level of trust that made Shurmur think it was worth waiting to see what Minnesota did.

"I think if he gets the opportunity, he'll be successful", Viking head coach Mike Zimmer said, per ESPN's Jordan Raanan. The Eagles already have lost DeFilippo and may lose offensive coordinator Frank Reich who is a candidate for the head coach job with the Colts (which Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels spurned earlier this week).

Stefanski, 35, began coaching with the Vikings as an assistant to then-head coach Brad Childress in 2006.

Finally, they attended a reception at Palace of Holyroodhouse , where they celebrated Scotland's Year of Young People 2018. Markle accessorized with a purse from the brand Strathberry , an Edinburgh-based luxury label, according to People .

Vikings fans will defend the team by pointing out that Stefanski will be in line to get promoted after next season if DeFilippo's first season in Minnesota is a success and he gets a head coaching job somewhere else. Otherwise, Minnesota would promote Stefanski to offensive coordinator, and Shurmur would turn to another option. I certainly support a person's ability to find a new and better job and be able to leave their current organization he is with to do so. The Vikings clearly weren't ready to lose Stefanski - the son of Ed Stefanski, executive VP of player personnel for the NBA's Memphis Grizzlies. I believe this is a case where both sides are living up to their side of the bargain.

The Giants are an offensively-challenged team in a transition period.

This would appear to have been a rough couple of weeks for Kevin Stefanski.
