Report: Vikings will hire former Raiders OC Todd Downing

By Matthew Coller

It appears Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator John DeFilippo is bringing in a little help.

According to Adam Caplan, the Vikings will hire former Oakland Raiders offensive coordinator Todd Downing as an offensive assistant and “passing game specialist.”

The Eden Prairie native worked with the Vikings from 2001 to 2005, last serving as offensive quality control coach. He served as quarterbacks coach for the Buffalo Bills, Detroit Lions and Oakland Raiders before being elevated to OC last season. The Raiders let Downing go after hiring Jon Gruden as their head coach.
