After a long road, Kevin Stefanski to return as Vikings'...

Stefanski began 2018 as quarterbacks coach before being promoted to offensive coordinator on an interim basis when John DeFilippo was sacked December 11.

Stefanski had been a finalist for the Cleveland Browns' head-coaching job, but after the Browns chose Freddie Kitchens over him Wednesday, Stefanski agreed to return to Minnesota where he's been since 2006, even if it's been tumultuous at times.

Stefanski took over the role in the latter part of the 2018 season after the offense struggled under former offensive coordinator John DeFilippo.

In three games with Stefanski calling the plays, the Vikings averaged 307.3 yards total offense after averaging 354.4 in the first 13.

"I think Kevin is a really good football coach".

"Kevin is a smart young coach with a bright future", Zimmer said in a press release. Cousins had one of the best statistical seasons of his career with his highest completion percentage (70.1) ever. "He's well respected by coaches and players both and I know he's up to the task".

In Stefanski's first game as OC against the Dolphins, Cook had hist first 100-yard game of the season, rushing for 136 yards and two touchdowns. "He lets his play-makers do all the talking for him", Cook said.
