Mike Priefer departs as Vikings' special teams coordinator, will join Browns

As of Friday afternoon, the Browns still had not officially announced Freddie Kitchens as head coach.

Mike Priefer is out as the Minnesota Vikings special teams coach.

Two years later, Wilks could find himself in that same position once again with a different organization, as ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Wilks was heading to Cleveland to meet with the Browns for their vacant defensive coordinator position. His contract was up after the 2018 season and Priefer, who according to NFL Network was offered a contract to return to Minnesota, has chose to join the Cleveland Browns as their defensive coordinator.

That announcement is coming, eventually, and Kitchens has been working since Wednesday as the head coach.

FDA inspections have stopped, thanks to government shutdown
As you probably recall, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA ) is part of the US federal government. The agency pays for medical manufacturing and food safety inspections out of its own budget.

During the majority of Mike Zimmer's tenure with the Minnesota Vikings, there has remained one constant problem that the team has never really been able to solve; the kicking game. Priefer denied the allegations and participated in sensitivity training after an independent investigation found enough cause to suspend him.

It seems Steve Wilks knocked his interview with the Cleveland Browns out of the park.

Meanwhile the search for offensive coordinator continues. Williams himself was sacked at the conclusion of the season and replaced by Freddie Kitchens, the former Arizona assistant and Browns offensive coordinator.

Running backs coach Ryan Lindley, who was hired by Kitchens as his replacement after he was promoted to offensive coordinator, is also a candidate to help Kitchens with the offense.
