John DeFilippo In Mix For Vikings’ OC Job?

John DeFilippo‘s been a hot commodity this postseason and despite being passed over for the Cardinals’ HC job, the Eagles’ quarterbacks coach could have a promising option after the Super Bowl.

The Vikings are hopeful they will get a chance to speak with DeFilippo about their OC job once permitted, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press tweets. Tomasson previously reported (via Twitter) DeFilippo was a name to watch following Super Bowl LII in an OC search that’s not expected to conclude until after this season’s final game.

It’s possible DeFilippo’s name is holding up the process, which has already included interviews with Vikings QBs coach Kevin Stefanski, ex-Seahawks OC Darrell Bevell, Texans QBs coach Sean Ryan and Saints tight ends coach Dan Campbell.

DeFilippo was also mentioned as a candidate to replace Bevell in Seattle, but the Seahawks went with Brian Schottenheimer for that post. The 39-year-old Philadelphia assistant is in his second season with the Eagles, and the performances of Carson Wentz and Nick Foles have made him an attractive candidate for higher-profile jobs.
