Report: Kirby Wilson Expected To Leave Steelers For Vikings
Pittsburgh Steelers running backs coach Kirby Wilson did not get the Baltimore Ravens offensive coordinator position that he interviewed for but he reportedly now join the staff of the Minnesota Vikings.
According to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Wilson, who originally came to Pittsburgh in 2007, will be hired by new Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer.
The Vikings hired Norv Turner to be their new offensive coordinator, so perhaps Wilson will be the new running backs coach in Minnesota.
It has been rumored that Wilson was looking to leave the Steelers even though he had one year remaining on his contract. Wilson will be the second coach that Mike Tomlin will have to replace this offseason as offensive line coach Jack Bicnell Jr. was fired after the season ended. He has been replaced by former Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Munchak this past week.
