The Minnesota Vikings have promoted Kevin Stefanski to Offensive Coordinator. He spent the latter part of the 2018 season as the Interim Offensive Coordinator.
Stefanski was a finalist for the Cleveland Browns head coaching position. He was beating out for the job by Freddie Kitchens, who the team promoted to Head Coach after serving as Interim Offensive Coordinator since October 2018.
“Kevin is a smart young coach with a bright future,” said Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer. “I’m happy to have him take over the offensive coordinator job. His work ethic and teaching ability have been obvious to me behind the scenes since I came here five years ago. He’s well respected by coaches and players both and I know he’s up to the task.”
The 36-year-old was the Vikings Quarterbacks coach from 2017 through being promoted to Interim Offensive Coordinator. He also was the Vikings Running Backs Coach in 2016.
He served as the Vikings Tight Ends Coach in 2014 and 2015. He also was the team’s Assistant Quarterbacks Coach from 2009 through 2013.
Stefanski served as an Assistant to the Head Coach from 2006 through 2008. He was the Penn Quakers Assistant Director of Football Operations in 2005.
He began his coaching career as a Philadelphia Eagles Operations Intern in 2005.
