The 2020 NFL season is officially in the books after the Tampa Bay Buccaneers won Super Bowl LV last night, and the Minnesota Vikings have kicked off the week by making a move that most of us have thought was coming for some time.

Per numerous sources, the Vikings have officially named Klint Kubiak as the team’s new offensive coordinator. He will take the reins from his father, Gary, who retired from the NFL last month.

Kubiak the Younger joined the Vikings’ staff in 2019 and has served as the team’s quarterback coach for the past two seasons. He will be replaced in that capacity by Andrew Janocko, who had been the wide receivers coach. Keenan McCardell, who was brought in from Jacksonville a couple of weeks ago, is the new wide receivers coach.

The move will allow the Vikings to keep the continuity of their offense, as Klint Kubiak shares many of the same philosophies as his father did. You can debate for yourselves whether that is a positive or a negative. This team has plenty of weapons on offense, so hopefully Klint Kubiak will be able to make effective use of them.

With that, the Vikings have filled all of the vacancies on their coaching staff and are officially ready to head into the offseason.

What are your thoughts on Klint Kubiak officially being named the offensive coordinator in Minnesota, folks?
