Anthony Lynn’s best job fits: 1. The offensive coordinator of the Minnesota Vikings

This is such a good fit for Anthony Lynn and the Minnesota Vikings that I really do think that this job is at the job of the list and the rest of the jobs are far below. I had not even thought of this possibility until FanSided Junior Editor Adam Patrick (who runs The Viking Age) tweeted about the possibility.

From that moment on, it made too much sense for me to ignore.

The Vikings have a job opening due to Gary Kubiak retiring after just one season at the post. Kirk Cousins had a breakout year and the Vikings’ offense ranked 11th in the league in points per game and fourth in total yards, but they are on the search nonetheless.

Lynn would be a great fit as his ideologies would fit perfectly in Minnesota. Charger fans know just how much Lynn loves to establish the run and the Vikings have one of the three best running backs in the league in Dalvin Cook, who is more than capable of establishing the run.

The Vikings also have a head coach in Mike Zimmer who spearheads the defensive duties and seemingly prefers the old style of football in which the offense is run-first. Of course, the two have to adapt to be successful, but they share similar ideologies and that is a huge start.

Lynn and Zimmer also coached together for a short period of time. Zimmer spent 13 years on the Dallas Cowboys’ coaching staff, with the two coaches both serving on the staff in 2005 and 2006.
