According to Albert Breer of the NFL Network, the Vikings will interview Philadelphia Eagles QB coach John DeFilippo for their Offensive Coordinator vacancy Thursday.
The Eagles gave the Vikings permission to interview DeFilippo before his contract with the team expires. It was originally reported the Vikings would have to wait until February 14th to speak with the coach. The two sides will meet in Philadelphia so he can participate in planned Super Bowl celebration activities.
Busy day for Eagles QBs coach John DeFilippo. He'll be at the parade down Broad this AM, interview for Vikings OC job tonight. Vikes are accommodating — They'll meet in Philly, rather than MN, so he can participate in the festivities.
