Report: Kevin Stefanski set to meet with Browns, Panthers over coaching jobs
Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Kevin Stefanski’s market is heating up, and two teams are interested in speaking to him.
According to Tom Pelissero of NFL Media, Stefanski is set to meet with the Cleveland Browns and Carolina Panthers over their vacant head coach jobs. With the Vikings playing a playoff game in New Orleans on Sunday afternoon, the exact timing is unclear and depends on how that game goes for Minnesota.
#Vikings OC Kevin Stefanski is slated to interview for the #Browns and #Panthers head coaching openings next week, source said. Timing will depend in part on what happens tomorrow vs. the #Saints. He was a finalist in Cleveland last year, too.

Only seven teams scored more points than the Vikings did this year, and Stefanski has been credited with helping Kirk Cousins become more efficient. Both Cleveland and Carolina seem interested in offensive minds, so he also fits the bill. The biggest issue will likely be timing, particularly if the Vikings win Sunday and keep going in the playoffs.
