The Vikings have started looking for a new head coach, reports Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports.

After losing to kick off the 2021 season, CBS Sports’s Jason LaCanfora reported that the owners expect « the club will be a playoff factor to avoid major changes ».

But La Canfora was approaching attended an indispensable primetime match on the street against the Green Bay Packers and reported on Sunday that the Vikings had already started the background work to find a new head coach for the 2022 season.

La Canfora, who is the coaching landscape of the NFL assessed, reported that the Vikings are preparing to find a new head coach at the end of the season.

The Vikings, Broncos and Bears have also had internal discussions about their head coaching situations and are preparing to search at the end last season, league sources said.

Although a final decision has not been made, the coaches of all three teams are poised to be elsewhere next season , and it would come as no surprise to many within these teams if they made a move. Within these organizations, background work began on potential candidates and the attributes that would be most appealing to owner / management, and all three of these teams had playoff expectations at the start of the season.

By the end of the game in week 17, could that will be deleted for everyone, and any chance the bears escaped a coaching search had basically expired weeks ago.

But without making the final decision, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported on Sunday that Zimmer’s fate was still going on is not sealed and a playoff appearance could secure his position in the team again.

« Mike Zimmer seems to be one of the coaches whose fate has not yet been decided, » wrote Rapoport. “Winning and reaching the playoffs would go a long way towards cementing his status. Miss the playoffs – for the fifth time in eight seasons – and it would be a decision that would be left to the owners of Minnesota. ”

Under this season’s trial rules, teams will be able to start the interview process for the Start hiring new coaches. Teams must inform their current head coach that they will not be hired prior to conducting the interview.

But with the Vikings only one loss away from being eliminated from the playoffs, the message of the Vikings is owned by both La Canfora and Rapoport for Zimmer clear.

If the Vikings lose on Sunday, Zimmer could still end the season in a meaningless game in Week 18 with the Chicago Bears. But the Vikings, who were officially eliminated from the playoffs in this scenario, could also come forward and Zimmer announce his resignation next week.

The Vikings (7-8) were already 6.5-point underdogs in their week 17 road matchup entered with the Packers (12-3).

But after Kirk Cousins ​​tested positive for COVID-19 and banned from primetime tilt, the betting odds shifted sharply in favor of Green Bay, which now, according to FanDuel 13-point favorites are.

Sean Mannion, who has never thrown a touchdown in seven years as a professional, will start under the middle for the Vikings – which leaves little optimism for a passing game at a substitute level.

The game will depend on the Vikings Run game, which Dalvin Cook welcomes back after the star missed week 16 against the Los Angeles Rams after testing positive for COVID-19.

Cook has 226 All-purpose yards and four touchdowns accumulated in a 28-22 win over the Packers when Minnesota won the final Te times visited Lambeau Field, but if Cook is used in a strong running approach, the Packers defense must at least respect Mannion and the passing game.
