Gary Kubiak is back in the offensive coordinator chair.
NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Thursday the Minnesota Vikings will tap Kubiak as the team's new OC, per sources informed of the decision.
Kubiak spent the 2019 season as the Vikings assistant head coach and offensive advisor. He was heavily credited with importing the familiar run scheme that dominated his stints as head coach in Houston and Denver.
On the defensive side of the ball, Rapoport noted that one option for Minnesota's vacant defensive coordinator job is to split duties between impressive assistants DL coach Andre Patterson and LBs coach Adam Zimmer. The team parted ways with former DC George Edwards after the 2019 season.
