EAGAN, Minn. – The Minnesota Vikings have reportedly suspended offensive coordinator Wes Phillips for three weeks.

Phillips’ suspension takes effect on Tuesday ESPN reporter Kevin Seifert.

Phillips was arrested for misdemeanor DWI in December. He pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of careless driving, according to Seifert.

Phillips, 45, is entering his third season as the Vikings’ OC. Minnesota ranked in the top 10 in yards gained in each of his first two seasons, despite injuries to starting quarterback Kirk Cousins ​​and star wide receiver Justin Jefferson last year. In 2022, Phillips’ offense led Cousins ​​to the best game of his career and Jefferson to a Offensive Player of the Year Award.

With Cousins’ departure, Phillips will have his hands full helping head coach and playcaller Kevin O’Connell plan an offense for bridge QB Sam Darnoldor possibly a rookie.

Phillips’ suspension ends just before the NFL draft, scheduled for April 25-27, but he will miss some pre-draft workouts and visits. He will also miss the voluntary offseason training program, which starts April 15.

O’Connell acquired Phillips from the Los Angeles Rams after the two won a Super Bowl there. Phillips is the son and grandson of NFL legends Wade and Bum Phillips.

This year will be Phillips’ 18th coaching in the NFL.
