We appear to have a development in the Pat Shurmur head coaching situation.

According to ABC15 in Phoenix, Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur is the leading candidate to take over as the Arizona Cardinals next head coach.

Sources told ABC15 sports that the Cardinals believe Shurmur is an “attractive candidate” in part because of the possibility of him luring quarterback Case Keenum to Arizona. Keenum is a free agent after the season.

Minnesota Vikings defensive coordinator George Edwards will interview for the Chicago Bears head coaching position.

Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reported the Bears have requested an interview with Vikings Defensive Coordinator George Edwards. Edwards is in his fourth season as the Vikings Defensive Coordinator. Edwards has also held the same position in Washington (2003) and Buffalo (2010-2011) per the team’s website. The 2017 season is Edwards’ 20th as a coach in the NFL.

The Vikings defense finished as the best in the NFL during the regular season.

Minnesota’s defense has improved every year since Edwards joined the team in 2014. Under then first-year head coach Mike Zimmer, the Vikings ranked 14th in total defense. In 2015 the unit rose to 13th. Last season the defense finished as the third-best in the NFL.
