Last night Olisaemeka Udoh Minnesota Vikings Jerseys , s were likely not going to bring back Kevin Stefanski as the offensive coordinator, and instead appeared to be focusing on former Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Mularkey to fill the vacancy.I understand that doesn’t sound like jazzy or sexy potential hire on the surface, but one of our Twitter followers pointed out a potential aspect to this that I had not previously thought of.As I talked about in the piece I posted earlier today, Mike Zimmer knows that he needs to fix the offensive line this offseason, and a big part of that is going to be finding an offensive line coach. Much like he did when he hired Tony Sparano, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Zimmer bring in someone with a great deal of experience that he feels he can trust.Russ Grimm has experience, and he has it in spades.After an outstanding career as part of the legendary “Hogs” that won three Super Bowls for the Washington Redskins Minnesota Vikings Jerseys Stitched , Grimm retired and joined the coaching ranks. He’s been an offensive line coach for four different teams. . .the Redskins, the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Arizona Cardinals, and the Tennessee Titans. . .and has been nothing short of outstanding in all of those spots. When Mularkey took over as the coach of the Titans in 2016, he brought Grimm with him to coach the offensive line, and he transformed the Titans’ offensive line from one of the NFL’s worst to one of its best.Grimm announced his retirement after Mularkey was relieved of his duties in Tennessee after the 2017 season, but he’s taken breaks from coaching before. After the entire coaching staff in Arizona was dismissed following the 2012 season Olisaemeka Udoh Jersey nfl draft , Grimm was out of coaching until he joined Mularkey in Tennessee in 2016. Perhaps if Mularkey was hired as an offensive coordinator in Minnesota (or anywhere else, really), he would be able to convince Grimm to join him on the sideline again.Obviously, there hasn’t been anything formally out there that suggests that Grimm would be a part of any hiring of Mularkey. But I don’t think it can be discounted as a possibility. At this point, Grimm can probably pick his spots when it comes to coaching opportunities, and perhaps working with Mularkey again to rebuild the offensive line for a team with big aspirations would be intriguing to him.I understand that a lot of people probably wouldn’t be terribly excited by the Minnesota Vikings hiring Mike Mularkey as their offensive coordinator. I likely would be a part of that crowd. However, I’d be a whole lot more excited about it if Russ Grimm could be convinced to come along and spearhead the rebuilding and rehabilitation of the Vikings’ offensive line. In Mike Zimmer’s five seasons in Minnesota Super Bowl Olisaemeka Udoh Jersey , the Vikings employed four kickers who made 80.6 percent of their field goals and 90.3 percent of their extra points.The Vikings continue to search for an answer as Zimmer enters his sixth season.“I think part of it is we allow them to — especially young guys — make some mistakes, make sure they understand we’re behind them,” Zimmer said. “I’ve also really been thinking hard about trying to get someone [to help the team’s kicker]. These golfers have swing coaches. Everybody’s got coaches now who do these things. So I’ve been thinking really, really hard about trying to find a true kickers coach, where that’s all he does.”The Buccaneers have former NFL kicker Chris Boniol to work with their kicker, but few teams employ a true specialist coach.Former NFL kicker Michael Husted is among the private kicking coaches.“Most of them are former kickers you’re talking to or things like that,” Zimmer said. “We’ll just have to see if I can find the right one. Those guys have to fit in with the rest of the staff Garrett Bradbury Minnesota Vikings Jerseys , too.”The Vikings gave up on Daniel Carlson too soon after drafting him in the fifth round last year. He went 1-for-4 in two games with Minnesota in 2018 but finished the season going 16-of-17 in 10 games with Oakland.Dan Bailey, who once was the NFL’s all-time most accurate kicker, finished up the season with the Vikings and was only 21-of-28 on field goals and 30-of-31 on extra points.“Probably too much,” Zimmer said when asked how much he thinks about the kicking game. “You sit there, and you think about we missed a 27-yard field goal [by Blair Walsh] in Seattle in the [2015] playoffs. Then, this happens. Then, you bring a guy in Minnesota Vikings Jerseys 2019 , and he misses an extra point. Then, maybe you’re a little bit more jumpy than maybe you should be, I think. It’s like everything else you might overreact.”
