Phil Rauscher

Offensive Line Coach

Biography

Phil Rauscher returns to the Vikings in 2021 as Offensive Line coach, his 2nd season with the club and 7th season of NFL coaching. 

The 2020 Vikings offense had success with a balanced attack that ended the season ranked #4 in the NFL in total offense and #5 in rushing offense. Dalvin Cook had a career-best 1,557 yards on the ground and 16 rushing TDs, ranking 2nd in the NFL in yardage. Cook's yards ranked 3rd for a season and his 16 TDs ranks 2nd in Vikings history. The offense scored 55 TDs during 2020, the 2nd-most TD generated by a Vikings offense in franchise history, just trailing the 58 by the 1998 team. Cook earned a Pro Bowl berth and All-Pro accolades for the campaign. 

The 2020 Vikings offensive line got a boost when 2nd-round rookie Ezra Cleveland moved into the starting job at RG and solidified the lineup. The right side of the line was all 1st and 2nd-round Vikings picks from 2018, '19 and '20 between Garrett Bradbury at center (1st round, 2019), Cleveland and Brian O'Neill at RT (2nd round, 2018).
