Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Kevin Stefanski has lined up interviews with two teams about their vacant head coaching positions.
Stefanski will have competition for those jobs, with NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reporting New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels is considered "a top candidate" by Cleveland and Carolina:
Pelissero noted Stefanski's interview dates will depend on the result of the Vikings' playoff game against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.
The Browns know Stefanski well after interviewing him twice last year before deciding to hire Freddie Kitchens as their head coach.
Carolina is searching for a new head coach after firing Ron Rivera last month. The Panthers interviewed Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy on Thursday, Peter Schrager of Fox Sports reported.
Stefanski has been with Minnesota since 2006. He took over as offensive coordinator late last season when John DeFilippo was fired.
The Vikings offense under Stefanski ranked sixth in the NFL with 133.3 rushing yards per game and eighth with 25.4 points per game this season.
