The Minnesota Vikings are one of a handful of NFL teams beginning a coaching search, and the team is reportedly looking at the college ranks for Leslie Frazier's replacement.
Heard powerful ppl in #Vikings organization want a college guy but doubt that ends up happening.— Bruce Feldman (@BFeldmanCBS) December 30, 2013
A specific name floated has been UCLA head coach Jim Mora, although it does not seem to be a likely scenario.
Jim Mora is another name I've heard on Vikings radar - can't see that happening - and Adam Gase, Denver OC, could get interview request also— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) December 30, 2013
Mora has a background as an NFL head coach, compiling a 26-22 record with the Falcons (with one playoff appearance in three seasons) and a 5-11 mark in one year with the Seahawks in 2009. In 2012, he was hired as UCLA's head coach, and has orchestrated a monumental turn-around for the program, with two straight nine-win seasons.
Another college coach that has been named as a potential candidates for the Vikings is Penn State head man Bill O'Brien, who is also rumored to be sought after by the Houston Texans.
