Glazer: Vikings hire former Eagles OC Shurmur to staff

With three offensive coordinators in Philly, there wasn't room for a fourth, so the Eagles' loss was the Vikings' gain.

Minnesota has hired former Eagles OC Pat Shurmur to join coach Mike Zimmer's staff, NFL on FOX insider Jay Glazer reported Saturday night.

Earlier this month the Eagles hired Doug Pederson, the Chiefs' offensive coordinator, as their new head coach. Pederson, in turn, hired Chargers OC Frank Reich and Browns OC John DeFilippo, who will coach the quarterbacks.

Last season under Shurmur, the Eagles offense ranked 12th in the NFL while Minnesota's ranked 29th. However, head coach Chip Kelly was fired at the end of December as the Eagles wrapped up a 7-9 season.
