Kevin O’Connell dances around questions about Ed Donatell’s future

The Minnesota Vikings had their season-ending press conference on Wednesday afternoon and the biggest question going into it was whether or not Vikings defensive coordinator Ed Donatell would be returning for the 2023 season.

Head coach Kevin O’Connell danced around the question, saying that they are in an “evaluation period” and didn’t have any decisions made at this point.

It is worth noting that he didn’t say one way or the other whether Donatell would be back and I think it’s important. The only real piece of news that could be gathered from what O’Connell said is that he and general manager Kwesi Adofo-Mensah are having conversations with everyone about the future of this team, what could have been better and how they need to improve.

Buckle up Vikings fans, it could be a little bit before we receive any clarity on defensive coordinator.
