He was named interim offensive coordinator after John DeFilippo was fired. 

Stefanski was a head coach candidate for the Cleveland Browns, who instead picked their interim offensive coordinator Freddie Kitchens

Stefanski, who joined the Vikings in 2006 as an assistant to coach Brad Childress, is the longest-tenured member of Minnesota's coaching staff. He has coached tight ends, running backs and quarterbacks for the Vikings.
