Vikings let go offensive line coach Jeff Davidson

By Andrew Krammer

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — The Vikings will not renew the contract of offensive line coach Jeff Davidson, coach Mike Zimmer announced on Tuesday.

Davidson, 48, had coached the Vikings’ offensive linemen since Leslie Frazier was promoted to head coach before the 2011 season. He was one of a few assistant coaches to remain when Zimmer was hired in January 2014, including receivers coach George Stewart, tight ends coach Kevin Stefanski and special teams coordinator Mike Priefer.

“I didn’t want to,” Zimmer said when asked why he decided to not renew Davidson’s contract.

The Vikings allowed 45 sacks in the regular season and dealt with season-ending injuries to right tackle Phil Loadholt and center John Sullivan before Week 1. Davidson oversaw the selection of left tackle Matt Kalil with the fourth-overall pick in the 2012 draft.

“Sporadic,” was how Zimmer described the offensive line’s play this season.
