I have my short list for the Vikings, and it's very short.
HIre Darrell Bevell as your head coach. Draft Johnny Manziel to play quarterback.
Wouldn't that be perfect?
Bevell served as the buffer between Brett Favre and Brad Childress, even when the two hated each other. He can handle Manzeil's wild persona. He can also coach and develop an unconventional quarterback, as we've seen with Russell Wilson.
I also like Charlie Strong and Jack Del Rio as candidates, but I'm not sure anything would be more fun or productive than a Bevell-Manziel alliance.
Rick Spielman will probably spend 300 hours on the coaching search. I could save him a lot of time.
Thanks for reading and listening this year. I"ll be back on the radio Thursday morning at 7:15 a.m. on WJON in St. Cloud, and at noon on 1500ESPN (AM-1500 KSTP in the Twin Cities.)
