Vikings fire coach Rick Dennison after he refuses to take the COVID-19 vaccine

Rick Dennsion fired by Vikings
Vikings have parted ways with offensive line coach Rick Dennison after he refused to take the COVID-19 vaccination.

The Minnesota Vikings are the first team to stand their ground on the COVID-19 vaccination. According to a report, Rick Dennison the teams offensive line coach and run game coordinator has been fired by the team.

Dennison is believed to be the first NFL position coach to part ways with his team after choosing not to receive a vaccine.

Dennison, who had served as the Vikings’ offensive line coach/run game coordinator the past two seasons will be replaced this season by Phil Rauscher.

The vaccine is required for all Tier 1 staff, including coaches, front-office executives, equipment managers and scouts.

Dennison put his foot down and will now likely try to beat the Vikings in court. It will be interesting to see how it is viewed in the legal system.
