Without confirmation from the team on any decisions made by head coach Mike Zimmer, here are the pieces we know and what we've been told to date.
Indications are that Priefer could be cleared of those charges, and he is apparently still involved in the process of talent evaluation. One prospect at the Senior Bowl, Florida State linebacker Christian Jones, said the Vikings' special teams coordinator was part of an interview he had with two Vikings coaches Monday night. Asked specifically if that was Priefer, Jones said yes.
Many of the coaches weren't around Winter Park last week when Zimmer was hired and it doesn't sound like they were communicating in-depth with him about their status either. One of the position coaches that was heading to Mobile this week said he was coming without knowing if he was supposed to scout for the Vikings or not, but was hoping to talk with Zimmer about his status here this week.
Other positions coaches, like offensive line coach Jeff Davidson, have been seen scouting players at their position as they normally would.
Another position coach, issued a "no comment – a strong no comment" when asked about his status.
And Scott Turner, son of Norv Turner, has been interviewing quarterback prospects at the Senior Bowl, according to the Star Tribune.
The status of former defensive coordinator Alan Williams isn't known at this point, but it's likely either back to coaching defensive backs (which he did with the Indianapolis Colts before joining the Vikings) or more likely looking for work with another team.
Former linebackers coach Mike Singletary said Tuesday that he told former head coach Leslie Frazier before the 2013 began that this would be his final season as a position coach. He said he has had talks with three other NFL teams so far at the Senior Bowl but he wasn't interested in being a position coach any longer. He also said coaching in the college ranks wasn't something he had seriously considered yet.
The only clear conclusion from talks down in Mobile is that most coaches have been told not to discuss their status at this point, but it would appear the staff is starting to come together.
