    I know the Vikings have had a lot of these meaningless signings, but I do have to wonder WTF was wrong with Russ Kolodziej that he wasn't a better option as a re-signee than some guy who hasn't played in 2 seasons.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    I think the last sentence in that paragraph says a lot.

    That's easy...Karl Dunbar wasn't Kolodziej's college coach.

    Whats up with teh coach they signed as well? I never knew we had a spot to fill.
    As far as the signing goes it seems like a nice back-up ffor the DT position.

    VIKINGS NAME ASSISTANT DBs COACH
    http://www.vikings.com/news_detail_objectname_coachrelease5807.html

    The Minnesota Vikings have named Derek Mason to the staff as Assistant Defensive Backs coach.

    Mason joins the Vikings after 13 seasons coaching on the collegiate level. Mason most recently worked at Ohio University where he helped Frank Solich's staff rebuild the Bobcats program and play in the GMAC Bowl following the 2006 season. The bowl game was the first for Ohio since the 1968 Tangerine Bowl. The team advanced to the Mid-America Conference title game against Central Michigan and ended the season with a 9-5 mark.

    Mason has worked on both sides of the ball and assisted on special teams in the return game throughout his coaching career. Mason got his first exposure to the NFL through NFL Minority Coaching Fellowship opportunities with St. Louis in 1996, the NY Giants in 2000 and Oakland in 2006. A 1992 graduate of Northern Arizona University, Mason played DB for the Lumberjacks when Brad Childress served on the staff. Mason was teammates at NAU with current Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator Brian Stewart.

    MASON'S BACKGROUND COACHING:

    1994 Mesa CC WRs
    1995-96 Weber State WRs/Return Specialists
    1997-98 Idaho State WRs/Return Specialists
    1999-2000 Bucknell WRs/Return Specialists
    2001 Bucknell DBs
    2002 Utah WRs/Return Specialists
    2003 St. Mary's (CA) Co-Defensive Coord./Asst. Head Coach
    2004 New Mexico State WRs/Return Specialists
    2005-06 Ohio WRs

    Whatever works.....I wouldn't care if each individual player had their own coach, if it translated to wins.
