According to ESPN’s Ed Werder, former Broncos coach Josh McDaniels will meet with Vikings officials Friday for a potential opening on Leslie Frazier’s staff.

One potential opening could be for the Minnesota offensive coordinator spot (and really, it seems rather unlikely McDaniels would take a job below the coordinator level, anyway).

For now, Darrell Bevell – the Vikings offensive coordinator since Brad Childress was hired as coach in 2006 – is still employed in Minnesota.

But already, Frazier has fired three offensive coaches, so it’s doubtful that Bevell can feel completely safe about his job. Especially if McDaniels – who’s already proven himself an impressive offensive mind – is coming to town.

And a little more food for thought: besides McDaniels, you know who else might like a new job? Denver's Kyle Orton. You know which other team might need a quarterback? The Vikings.

UPDATED (7:55 p.m.): Also, ESPN's John Clayton is reporting that former 49ers coach Mike Singletary also might interview with the Vikings for the vacant linebackers coach spot.

With the redskins probably cutting ties with Donovan Mcnabb, I'm surprised nobody is rumoring him to head to Minnesota.  With an aging defense, and a win now mentality, the move makes a little bit of sense.  Mcnabb has a couple decent years left in him, and it would give the vikings a chance to groom a quarterback rather than throwing an inexperienced QB out there, or Kyle Orton.

I don't care one way or another with McDaniels or Singletary....but i like the idea of trading for Orton.  This should guarantee that the Vikings revert back to their true identity: RUNNING TEAM.  Hand off to AP.  Screens to Harvin.  Deep balls to Rice to keep teams honest. Utilize the TE more often.    This would allow them to either draft a QB to develp OR use both #12 and 44 for OL and SS help.

Excellent!

With Frazier already in place, and McDaniels running the offense, I can only be excited! These moves will guarantee that the Vikes are the cellar dwellers of the NFC North for years to come. Please hire McD.

By hiring 2 proven winners like  hoodie jr. mcdaniels and settle down singletary the vikes are really presenting a strong case to the fans in minny to build them a new stadium---amazing that one org could make 2 of the worst possible decisions--rest of the norris div. teams must be howling with joy.  Detroit is even on a better path than this carnival.
