The Priefer plan

Joe Marciano, a 60-year-old man with 28 years as an NFL special teams coach, isn’t the retiring type. The Vikings interim special teams coach said he’s looking for a full-time job for next season but isn’t angling to become Mike Priefer’s full-time replacement in Minnesota.

“You don’t replace Mike Priefer,” Marciano said. “I’ve known him a long time. He’s as fine a coach and fine an individual as there is. He has such command in that room. The players respect him.”

Marciano joined the team on Sunday. He’ll work with Priefer and assistant Ryan Ficken until the regular season, when Priefer will begin serving his suspension for an anti-gay comment made in 2012.

“Mike’s way works,” Marciano said. “I’m not here to invent the wheel.”
