On Thursday, the Vikings announced that defensive coordinator Ed Donatell will not be returning to the team in 2023. Donatell was in his first year with the team after previously serving in the same role with the Denver Broncos under Vic Fangio.
The 2022 Minnesota Vikings had a top 10 offense, but Donatell's defense ranked in the bottom five. They allowed over 25 points per game and gave up over 30 points six times - including in their playoff loss to the New York Giants.
Minnesota have a window right now to make the Super Bowl for the first time in decades and can't waste time trying to nail down the right guy to coach their defense. They need to make the right decision now.Who will Minnesota hire as their next defensive coordinator?
