Minnesota, recently, decided to have a new start on the management and coaching aspects of the team when they fired Head Coach Mike Zimmer and General Manager Rick Spielman. The GM position was the first one to be filled with former Browns’ executive Kwesi Adofo-Mensah.
O’Connell, a former quarterback with San Diego State, started his coaching career with the Cleveland Brown as their quarterbacks coach. He also was the San Francisco 49ers offensive assistant and then travel to Washington to be the quarterbacks coach of the newly named Washington Commanders.
While his time in Washington, he was promoted to be the Offensive Coordinator in 2019. The next year, he was signed by the Rams to be their OC and in this past season, they were a top 10 offense including a Super Bowl ring.
He will now have a chance to run a team and lead them to success.
