The Vikings’ search for an offensive coordinator will reportedly include a meeting with Texans quarterbacks coach Sean Ryan.

Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports that Ryan is set to interview with the team on Monday. Ryan is currently in Mobile, Alabama with the rest of the Texans coaching staff for the Senior Bowl.

Ryan interviewed with the Browns this month before they hired Todd Haley as their offensive coordinator. He’s spent the last two years on Bill O’Brien’s staff in Houston and was with the Giants from 2007-2015 in a variety of offensive roles.

Former Seahawks and Vikings offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell and current Vikings quarterbacks coach Kevin Stefanski have also been identified as candidates for an opening created when Pat Shurmur was hired as the Giants’ head coach.

  1. We should have pounced on Philbin before the Packers got him.
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>><<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
    Even if the Vikings had offered Joe Philbin the same money and responsibilities, Joe would have come back to GB. He's MM's buddy.

  2. Why not try the younger QB coach that has worked with Shurmur the last 2 years than out-dated retreads like Bevell or Philbin?

  3. I feel at the end of the day Stefanski will be the new OC. He has been there for a long time coached all facets on offense TEs,RBs and QBs. He knows the culture and he knows what Zim is looking for on offense. Really don’t particularity care for Bevell or Ryan. Hire in house because they players know him and trust him. Stefaniski knows the players strengths, what they need to work on in the off-season – in others words the Vikes will be ahead of the game in OTAs and by the time they get to training camp. Question is will Stefanski hire determine who will be under center come opening.

  5. Tony Sparano is still there at the Vikings coach in the offensive line. He used to be a head coach among other things. I wonder if he could help mentor a first time coordinator? It wouldn’t break my heart to see someone new and fresh come to Minnesota now that they have the talent to be flexible on offense.

  6. I’m pulling for Stefanski to get the job. Not sure that the Texans QB coach’s perceived success isn’t due to DeShawn Watson’s talent.

  7. Sean has worked with Eli in New York, he is also down at the Senior Bowl coaching draft prospects. I have no problem with Zimmer getting to know him. Pat Shumur loves Sam Bradford. Giants could sign Bradford, trade Eli (maybe to Vikes), and draft a young QB. So, with that in mind, talking to Sean Ryan about any opening the Viking have makes since. Quarterback coach might also be of some interest to him if the Viking’s trade for Eli and move Stefanski up to offensive coordinator?

  8. Ryan interviewed with the Browns this month before they hired Todd Haley as their offensive coordinator.

    Given the history of the Browns, wouldn’t you say they don’t tend to make a lot of good decisions? Given that, I don’t see any stigma with interviewing someone the Browns passed on.

  10. Hey look, the Vikings are coming back to philly next year, anybody want to go??? I promise we’ll be nice hahahaha bunch of crybabies, the fact that you all won’t let people from philly stay in your Airbnb is hilarious. Hahaha you’re really showing us! Pro Bowl is in 3 days guys, enjoy 🙂
