The Vikings announced a few coaching moves on Monday, including Adam Zimmer and Andre Patterson, each being promoted to co-defensive coordinator. The Vikings also officially announced Gary Kubiak as their offensive coordinator, something KSTP reported on last week.

Patterson will help oversee Minnesota's defense in his ninth season with the club, his first as a defensive coordinator, while continuing his work with the defensive line.
