Tyke Tolbert on his way to Minnesota?
It looks like the New York Giants might be looking for a new wide receivers coach soon.
Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network is reporting that the Minnesota Vikings are interviewing Giants’ wide receivers coach Tyke Tolbert this week for their vacant offensive coordinator position.
With Gark kubiak retiring, the Vikings would like to keep the same offense and they can do that with Tolbert who worked under Kubiak with the Denver Broncos.
The 53 year-old Tolbert has been coaching since 1995 when he was the wide receivers coach at the University of Ohio. He made the jump to the NFL in 2003 with the Arizona Cardinals and has also worked for the Buffalo Bills, Carolina Panthers and like the mentioned above the Broncos.
If the Vikings do hire Tolbert this will be his first time as an offensive coordinator. All of his previous positions have been as a wide receivers or tight ends coach.
