The Minnesota Vikings will have a third different offensive coordinator in multiple seasons when Klint Kubiak succeeded his father Gary, who took over from last season.
Sr. Kubiak returned to the Vikings as offensive coordinator last year. Previously, coordinator Kevin Stefanski was appointed as the head coach of the Cleveland Browns after the 2019 season.
Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer said on Thursday that compared to Stefansky, he thinks Klint Kubiak operates similarly.
“Clint, he looks a lot like Kevin was there,” Zimmer said through Mark Craig. Minneapolis Star Tribune. “He was very detailed. He proposed the topic they wanted to discuss [in offensive meetings]. He will have his opinion. He would listen to other people’s opinions in the room and walk from there. “
Klint took the position of quarterback coach at Stefanski in 2019, after which Stefanski left the team. Last season, he still served as Gary (Gary) to take over as the coordinator, and then announced his retirement.
Klint (Klint) served as the Broncos offensive assistant and quarterback coach from 2016 to 2018. He joined the team in his father’s last season as the team’s head coach, and stayed for two seasons under the leadership of head coach Vance Joseph.
This will be Clint’s first offense in his career. Stefanski also played for the first time when he was promoted to offensive coordinator at the end of the 2018 season after John DeFilippo was fired.
“He did a great job,” Zimmer said. “Everyone wants to know what it will be like when you play a game for the first time, but at the end of the day, each of us will always play a game for the first time at some point.”
