Former Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur was quick to add one of his former players in tight end Kyle Carter.

Former coaching staff-mate Brad Childress talks Shurmur expectations
“Pat is a great hire because he’s wired and he’s a flatline guy,” Childress said on’s “Big Blue Kickoff Live” Monday. “What I mean by that is he’s never too high and he’s never too low. That’s Pat. He’s going to take it all in stride. He spent those years in Philadelphia, which I think probably thickened his skin a little bit in terms of the media and the fans. He’s always going to be level-headed and I’ve always appreciated that about him. He’s not going to rant and rave and stew. He’s going to figure out what his problem is and go about solving it.”
