    New Offense & Defense Coaches

    Here is the latest I found on the O line coaches. If it's already been posted I apologize, just delete. But I couldn't find the post anywhere.

    Star Tribune

    Sid Hartman: Coach brings in familiar faces
    Brad Childress will hire two former Gophers assistants, Jim Hueber and
    Pat Morris, to take charge of the offensive line.

    One of the first things that new Vikings coach Brad Childress talked
    about was how important good offensive and defensive lines are needed to
    succeed in the NFL.

    "You have to run it, and you can't throw it with the quarterback laying
    on his back," Childress said. "Great defense starts on the front with
    the defensive line. They apply the pressure and choke off the run. For
    those reasons we will move quickly to solidify both of those fronts.
    There are weapons here offensively. As a coach in this league, it is
    important that you use every one of the skills."

    With Steve Loney going to Arizona, Childress will bring in two former
    Gophers coaches to lead the offensive line -- Jim Hueber and Pat Morris.


    Hueber has spent the past 14 years at Wisconsin and served with the
    Gophers from 1984 to 1991. Hueber and Childress were at Wisconsin at the
    same time.

    Morris was the offensive line coach at Minnesota from 1979 to 1982.
    Since then he has coached at Southern California, Michigan State and
    Stanford in college and for the 49ers and Lions in the NFL.

    As for Loney, he got a two-year contract with Dennis Green at Arizona
    calling for a lot more money than what he made with the Vikings.

    He would have stayed with the Vikings if given the choice.

    A class act, Loney inherited the offensive coordinator job, something he
    didn't want, and went through a very tough year. Green is lucky to get
    Loney, one of the best in the business.

    Produced coaches

    Childress coached at Northern Arizona from 1986 to 1989. Also on that
    staff were Eagles coach Andy Reid, former Lions head coach Marty
    Mornhinweg, now with the Eagles, and former Raiders coach Bill Callahan,
    now Nebraska's coach.

    "Larry Kentera, who was Frank Kush's old defensive coordinator at
    Arizona State, was the head coach at Northern Arizona," Childress said.
    "He gave us all an opportunity to coach.

    "Later Mike Shanahan was there as well with Joe Salem. Pat Morris went
    through Northern Arizona. Joe Salem was there before we were. It was a
    pretty good place. Yeah, not too bad. Must have been the air up there in
    Flagstaff."

    Built programs

    Childress has been a part of two big building programs with the
    University of Wisconsin and the Eagles.

    The Badgers were 1-10 in Barry Alvarez's first year, 1990. Childress
    joined the staff in 1991 as the offensive coordinator and after two 5-6
    season helped them win three Rose Bowls.

    A similar thing happened with the Eagles. They were 3-13 in 1998 before
    Reid was named head coach and he brought Childress with him as the
    offensive coordinator. It didn't take long for the Eagles to become one
    of the powers in the NFL -- four consecutive NFC Championship Games.

    "Our offices were housed in the basement of Veterans Stadium where some
    of the rats were bigger than the cats that lived there. We ran an NFL
    franchise out of that environment," Childress said. "I witnessed and was
    part of creating a winning atmosphere and a can-do attitude throughout
    players, coach and staff."

    Childress has proved he can do it, and unless all his boosters are
    wrong, he will do it again. He made a very good impression his first day
    on the job. And the Wilfs have made it clear they will spend the money
    to give Childress the weapons. Coaching the Vikings was the best job
    available, and he was smart to take it.

    Well then do you think two line coaches will double the production?

    Re: New Offense Coaches

    It depends on what they are going to do. I'm not to familiar with the coaching staff needed for defense or offense. I'm just now starting to get into this part of things. I know about the different coaches for defense for the different positions. I know the QB's have a coach of their own, and special teams has their own. How many is usually needed for offense and what are their duties?
