(Eagan, MN) -- The Minnesota Vikings continue to search for their next defensive coordinator. The team announced yesterday that it interviewed Saints co-defensive coordinator Ryan Nielsen yesterday. Nielsen has been on the Saints staff since 2017, but last year was his first season as co-defensive coordinator. New Orleans had a top-ten scoring defense in the N-F-L last season. Minnesota is looking for a new DC after firing Ed Donatell after one season last week.
