It appears Leslie Frazier wants to make a big splash with his offense.
Former Denver Broncos coach Josh McDaniels will interview with the Vikings today, ESPN's Ed Werder reported, presumably for the offensive coordinator position.
The Vikings' current offensive coordinator is Darrell Bevell, but his job might not be safe after the team ranked 23rd in the NFL in total offense in 2010. It's possible Bevell could stay on the team in a different role after quarterbacks coach Kevin Rogers was not retained by Frazier.
McDaniels was fired after an 11-17 record the past two seasons in Denver, but he's known for his offensive mind. Before being hired by Denver, McDaniels was Bill Belichick's offensive coordinator with New England.
Broncos quarterback Kyle Orton had a productive season with 3,653 passing yards, 20 touchdowns and nine interceptions in 13 games. Orton, who signed a two-year, $11.621 million contract in August, does not appear to be part of the Broncos' long-term plans.
McDaniels took heat in Denver for more reasons than his subpar record. His video coordinator was caught filming a San Francisco 49ers practice before the teams played this season in London.
McDaniels isn't the only high-profile name reportedly headed to Minnesota for an interview. Former 49ers coach Mike Singletary is expected to interview for the Vikings linebackers coaching job, according to ESPN's John Clayton.
The 49ers fired Singletary after he coached the team to a 5-10 record through 15 games.
Singletary and Frazier have history from their playing days together with the Chicago Bears in the 1980s.
