The Vikings fired General Manager Rick Spielman and Head Coach Mike Zimmer Monday.  Star Tribune Sports Columnist Jim Souhan joined me on WJON today.  He says fans typically feel the team needs to move quickly to hire a General Manager and a head coach so they don't miss out on a hot candidate.  Souhan says mistakes are more likely to be made when an organization moves too quickly and hires the wrong candidate because of a fear of missing out.

Souhan says candidates for the job could include former Atlanta Falcons GM Thomas Dimitroff, Vikings co-director of player personnel Jamaal Stephenson, Chiefs Assistant GM Mike Borgonzi, and Indianapolis Colts Director of College Scouting Morocco Brown.
