Kevin O’Connell is 13-4 in one season as Minnesota Vikings’ head coach.
The Vikings finished at 13-4 and were the NFC North Champions in O’Connell’s first head-coaching job at any level. After two consecutive losing seasons with much higher aspirations, he replaced longtime head coach Mike Zimmer and managed to build a much-improved team.
Where Did Kevin O’Connell Coach Before the Vikings?
O’Connell came to Minnesota after serving as the Rams’ offensive coordinator in the 2020 and 2021 seasons.
His job in the 2021 season, leading the Rams to a Super Bowl victory over the Bengals, put him atop the wish list of many teams with head coaching vacancies. He later agreed to take over the Vikings three days after hoisting the Lombardi Trophy.
