Report: Mike Priefer Won’t Return As Vikings Special Teams Coach

By Vikings – WCCO | CBS Minnesota

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Mike Priefer is reportedly out as the Minnesota Vikings special teams coach.

After a season of multiple missed field goals and a kicker who was given the boot after a terrible early-season game against the Green Bay Packers, the Vikings have decided to part ways with Priefer.

That’s according to the Star Tribune’s Ben Goessling.

From @markcraignfl and @GoesslingStrib … Mike Priefer will not return as #Vikings special teams coordinator.

Priefer has been with the team for 8 seasons. He was suspended from the team during the 2014 season after allegations of making anti-gay remarks. He was reinstated after missing the first two games of the 2014 season.

The Vikings agreed to donate $100,000 to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights groups after the investigation was concluded and later reached an additional settlement to avoid a lawsuit from former punter Chris Kluwe, who made the allegations.

Priefer’s contract expired earlier this week.
