Vikings interview schedule heats up

Posted by: Chip Scoggins under Vikings coaches Updated: January 3, 2014 - 5:53 PM

The Vikings are beginning interviews for their coaching vacancy this weekend. They are starting with Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator Dan Quinn and will also interview offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

John Wooten, chairman of the Fritz Pollard Alliance, said the Vikings will interview Cleveland Browns defensive coordinator Ray Horton in Phoenix on Tuesday. Presumably, Vikings General Manager Rick Spielman will interview Arizona Cardinals defensive coordinator Todd Bowles in Phoenix early next week, too.

The Vikings also can interview coaches whose teams play in Wild Card games this weekend. That could include Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer and offensive coordinator Jay Gruden.
