The Vikings have fired Leslie Frazier and we’re starting to hear some names that could be in the running to be his replacement.
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Broncos defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio and offensive coordinator Adam Gase are both on the team’s radar. Schefter adds that the Vikings have inquired about Gase.
Del Rio was the head coach in Jacksonville for nine seasons, taking them to the playoffs twice and finishing his tenure with the Jaguars with a 68-71 record. He also stepped in as interim coach while John Fox was recuperating from heart surgery during this season with the Broncos going 3-1 in that stretch.
Gase is in his first season as the team’s offensive coordinator and was the quarterbacks coach in the two previous seasons. He also has spent time with the 49ers and Lions, but has no previous head coaching experience.
Del Rio and Gase can interview for jobs this week because the Broncos earned a bye and the first seed in the AFC playoffs.
