The coaching carousel continues for the Minnesota Vikings. After losing former running backs coach Kirby Wilson to the Cleveland Browns, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport revealed that the Vikings are set to interview former Eagles offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur on Friday. The only opening on the staff is Wilson’s vacated position, but it’s unlikely Shurmur would fill that role given his prior experience.

According to ESPN’s Ben Goessling, Shurmur is a potential candidate to become the St. Louis Rams’ next passing game coordinator. Shurmur is an experienced positional coach who most recently served as Chip Kelly’s offensive coordinator from 2013 to 2015. Before that, he was the head coach of the Browns during the 2011 and 2012 seasons and the Rams’ offensive coordinator from 2009 to 2010. Per Pro Football Reference, his longest tenure came with the Eagles, where he spent 10 seasons (1999-2008) as the team’s quarterbacks coach.
