DeFilippo worked well with Wentz and Foles. Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

The Minnesota Vikings have a lot to address this offseason. But now they appear to have their new offensive coordinator. And to put it simply, he was very highly sought after. But the Vikings are now set to hire Eagles’ QB coach John DeFilippo.

Vikings are hiring former Eagles’ QB coach John DeFilippo as their OC, per source. Super Bowl brain drain underway in Philadelphia.

That’s how these things typically go, of course. The Eagles are Super Bowl champions. Therefore, every coach they have is brilliant. But seriously, after working his magic with Carson Wentz (and then Nick Foles), it’s no wonder there’s interest.

But for the Eagles, there’s no reason to panic. They’re not losing their offensive coordinator (yet). But even if they would, they are fine as long as Doug Pederson is at the helm. However, he knows what winning a championship means. He knows that his team can’t keep everyone.

As you know, the nature of the business is you can’t keep everybody, that’s just the way it goes. But the ones that are here? My mindset is to be back to do it again and to keep doing it and keep doing it.

But that’s not all. Pederson wants to be a dynasty. But he knows challenges will be different going forward. And he’s ready.

These guys are well deserving of everything that they are going to be exposed to in the next coming weeks, coming months. And there’s a side of success that’s not the glamorous side, and it’s the side that’s … ‘Who’s going to hold out in OTAs? Who’s going to want the next big contract? And who’s going to miss this or that for an endorsement deal or an autograph signing? It’s the not-so-glamorous side of success.

But who’s next?
