By Matthew Coller

NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero is reporting that the Detroit Lions have requested permission to interview Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur.

The Lions announced the firing of head coach Jim Caldwell on Monday. Shurmur has led the Vikings to a top 10 scoring offense despite losing starting quarterback Sam Bradford in Week 1 and star running back Dalvin Cook to an ACL injury in Week 4.

Shurmur was previously a head coach with the Cleveland Browns.

The Vikings’ OC may have more requests as the Chicago Bears, Oakland Raiders, New York Giants, Indianapolis Colts have already fired coaches. There are also more openings likely to come.
