Vikings block Kevin Stefanski from going to Giants

Kevin Stefanski is in high demand this offseason and will ultimately land a job as an offensive coordinator.

Shurmur was hired as head coach of the New York Giants on January 22.

At this point, no other options are on the table.

Pat Shurmur the new Giants head coach, worked side by side with Stefanski in Minnesota and the thought was that he was the leader to take the OC job in NY.

Minnesota, though, is not releasing Stefanski from his coaching contract to pursue the opportunity in NY unless it is able to hire Philadelphia quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo away from the Eagles to replace Shurmur.

Investigators said they believe Orrego-Savala, who lives in Indianapolis , was intoxicated and driving without a license. As was previously reported, Orrego-Savala had been previously deported out of the USA on two separate occasions.

Stefanski is still the team's quarterbacks coach since he is under contract by the Vikings, so any outside interviews would need to be approved by the team's front office if another franchise wanted to hire him for another position. He has been with the Vikings' organization since 2006 working as an assistant to the head coach, assistant quarterbacks coach, tight ends coach and running back's coach.

A source said Eagles running backs coach Duce Staley would then become the frontrunner for New York's offensive coordinator vacancy.

The Vikings are reportedly interviewing DeFilippo following the Eagles' Super Bowl parade Thursday.

There were many worries that the Vikings would lose offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur, quarterbacks coach Kevin Stefanski, and defensive coordinator George Edwards from their coaching staff after the 2017 National Football League season, but they only ended up losing Shurmur.

Another possible option without the request hoops to jump through could be former Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell.
