Report: Todd Monken up for offensive coordinator in Detroit, Green Bay

Former Buccaneers offensive coordinator Todd Monken’s head coaching interviews didn’t land him a job, but he’s a popular name for teams looking for someone to run their offense.

A report on Thursday had Monken in the mix for vacancies with the Browns and Jaguars and Friday brings a report of two more suitors.

Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports that the Lions and Packers both want to speak to Monken. In the case of the Packers, the conversation would follow the one they had about their head coaching opening before Matt LaFleur was hired this week.

Former Jaguars coordinator Nathaniel Hackett has also been linked to the two NFC North teams as they look to fill out their staffs for the 2019 season.

    The poor Vikings. Never in the news, and when they are, it usually isn’t good, LOL.

    Earth to the boiler room…

    The Vikings already signed their offensive coordinator for the 2019 season. It was reported right here on PFT a couple of days ago.

    Other teams are still trying to find one from the leftovers.

  2. Doesn’t seem like an even comparison assuming LaFleur is calling his own plays. I would expect Monken to end up in Detroit where he will get to implement and call his own offense, not teach LaFleur’s.

  3. The Vikings already signed their OC for 2019….so he will be lucky to make it halfway through the year before Zim throws him under the bus, fires him, and blames him for not running the ball more…..

    You obviously mean offensive coordinator/scapegoat for the 2019 season (Sept-Nov.)
    Everybody knows this is the worst job in the NFL, as you’ll be out of work with your reputation abused by mid-season.

    As for Coach LaFluer looking outside his offensive thought branch, I have no problem with it.
    As long as there’s no extreme internal conflicts in philosophies, it can only broaden their concepts, formations and styles moving forward.

    Agree 100%. I can't believe I just did that. Agreed with a Vikings fan.
    But in reality just because LeFleur will be calling his own plays,… I think Joe Philbin might be a good choice as OC. Joe doesn't formulate the offense. He scouts the upcoming team for everything the HC needs to know. He provides suggestions to the HC and Aaron for schemes against defensive coverages. It's exactly what Matt needs to know.

    I haven’t heard John DeFilippo’s name anywhere, for any position. Hopefully, Zimmer didn’t bring this seemingly bright young man’s NFL coaching career to a complete end.
    ______________

    It isn’t so much the public executions Zimmer levels over kickers and OCs alike, it’s the behind the scenes dirt he throws on them throughout NFL channels that I find most disgusting.

    I can’t wait until he runs out of scapegoats and management musters enough wit and realizes just where their team’s problems really lie.
    Though, it might just take that clueless brain trust a while to figure out what is so painfully obvious to everyone else.

    In the dozen years Stefanski has worked for the Vikings their offense ranked better than 14th just twice. That Chinese food carton in the fridge is looking better and better.

    LaFleurs Tennessee offense finished 25th last year. There is an egg roll behind the carton of spoiled milk with your name on it.

    Stefanski was only the OC for the last three games – winning 2 of 3 (only loss to the NFC North Champs).

    He was a finalist in the Browns HC search – getting not 1, but 2 interviews.

    You might not remember, but the Vikings have been undefeated against your Packers for the last 2 seasons. The Packers have 1 win against the Vikings since 2015.

    Stefanski was the QB coach that led Case Keenum to his best year ever.

    He’s also been RB Coach, TE Coach. Asst QB Coach.

    We threw out the Chinese food carton – but I see that it’s now in your fridge. Dumpster diving…
