Broncos, Vikings And Bears Fighting Over Fired Coach?

The Broncos, Vikings and Bears are all fighting over a fired coach.

Less than a month ago, the New York Giants relieved Pat Shurmur of his duties after two years.

Between his two seasons in New York and two seasons in Cleveland Shurmur put together a record of 18-46.

While he has been unsuccessful as the main man over the course of his NFL career, Shurmur is still very respected around the league as an offensive mind. He had very positive experiences with the Philadelphia Eagles and Minnesota Vikings in that capacity.

According to multiple reports, three separate teams are now considering Shurmur for their offensive coordinator vacancies.

SNY football insider Ralph Vacchiano reported on Sunday that the Vikings were taking a very close look at Shurmur for the position left behind by Kevin Stefanski. Shurmur previously held the job in 2017 and the team went 13-3 with him manning the offense.

But Minnesota is not the only interested party.

According to CBS Sports NFL insider Jason LaCanfora, Chicago is also intrigued by what Shurmur can bring to the table. The team is currently without an offensive coordinator and needs someone to nurture Mitch Trubisky.

Finally, ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter also reported on Sunday that Denver was interested in bringing Shurmur on board.

“One strong candidate for the Broncos vacant offensive coordinator job is Pat Shurmur, I’m told,” he tweeted.

“He has plenty of interest around the league and would be a big-time hire for Vic Fangio. A rare veteran play-caller available, Shurmur would make sense for all parties.”

Based on all the interest in him, it is clear that one way or another Shurmur will find himself on another NFL roster relatively soon.
