Vikings to make ex-Eagles QB coach John DeFilippo new offensive coordinator

Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer right could soon lose Kevin Stefanski left to the Giants just like he lost Pat Shurmur

After Wentz went down, veteran quarterback Nick Foles stepped in and won all three playoff games he started, going on to be named Super Bowl MVP last Sunday in their win over the New England Patriots.

Former offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur was introduced for the first time as the New York Giants heach coach on January 26, the day Mike Zimmer began conducting interviews for his replacement at his ranch in Northern Kentucky.

The 2017 Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles have already lost a key member of their coaching staff.

The possibility of losing one or the other might be real.

The former Philadelphia quarterbacks coach doesn't know who Minnesota's quarterback will be, but whoever it is, he likes the weapons on the offensive side. This is a significant career advancement for him, even if he did not get a head coaching job due in part to the Eagles' Super Bowl run. DeFilippo spent two seasons (2016-17) as the Eagles quarterbacks coach after spending the previous season as the offensive coordinator of the Cleveland Browns. If the Vikings re-sign Keenum, how will DeFilippo capitalize off his identity as a running threat like the Eagles did with Wentz?

The Giants could have their new offensive coordinator by the end of the week. Stefanski climbed his way up Minnesota's coaching ranks and replaced the fired Scott Turner working with Vikings quarterbacks in 2017.

The thing is, their non-reboot of the Crocodile Dundee films is so good, it's gotten fans into a tizzy, left wanting more. The spot was reportedly bought at a cost of around US$5 million.

Chances are, however, the Eagles won't be losing both.

Meanwhile, offensive coordinator Frank Reich was considered to be a candidate for the Titans before they chose Mike Vrabel as their coach.

DeFilippo may not be handed a quarterback next season with the most talent in the NFL. In addition, the fact Reich would have just got a head coaching job means that DeFilippo could feel he is also on the fast track to a head coaching job. The Eagles time to celebrate is quickly coming to a close as it's nearly time for the Eagles to play the role of defending Super Bowl Champions.

The loss of either would have an impact, but with head coach Doug Pederson and Wentz, the offense will likely be fine.

At one point, it looked like the Eagles were going to be able to avoid having their staff weakened.
