First off, thanks to this fanshot by Landonio some now know that Tucker has turned down the Vikings job and stayed with the Jags.
Well according to this article the Vikings may have a backup plan if Spag joins the Eagles. I'm not very fund of this new name floating up in the article, but may somebody share with me more of a background on Juan Castillo? Yes, apparently the Vikings may pursue Mr. Castillo if we don't land Spagnulo, which at this point seems unlikely. HOPEFULLY the Vikings don't do what all of us fans don't want to see, promote Singletary. I have zero confidence that Singletary will improve our defense, being that our LB's declined this year, and SF all of a sudden grew great. And as quoted in the article
The only other known candidate is Vikings assistant head coach/linebackers coach Mike Singletary, 53, another close friend of Frazier's from their playing days together in Chicago. But Singletary has no experience calling defensive signals at any level, and numerous NFL sources over the past month have said Singletary's lone season with the team raised serious red flags at nearly every level of the organization.
Anywho, anyone up for Juan Castillo being our new DC? or as CCNorseman suggested, Jack Del Rio anyone?
