Pat Shurmur's interim tag has been removed.

After replacing Norv Turner as the Vikings offensive coordinator when Turner resigned midseason, Minnesota has decided to keep Shurmur at the position on a permanent basis.

This is the third time that Shurmur has been an offensive coordinator for a Sam Bradford-quarterbacked team, as he had earlier stints in St. Louis and Philadelphia.

The Vikings also announced that Kennedy Polamalu is the new running backs coach while Kevin Stefanski will move to quarterbacks coach.
