The Minnesota Vikings suspended offensive coordinator Wes Phillips for three weeks without pay following the legal resolution of a 2023 traffic stop in Minneapolis, the team confirmed.

The suspension began Tuesday and will conclude April 22, with a return to work on April 23. He’ll miss a key portion of draft preparation as the Vikings pursue their next quarterback, as well as the first week of the team’s offseason strength and conditioning program, which begins April 14.

Phillips, who joined the Vikings as part of coach Kevin O’Connell‘s original staff in 2022, was stopped Dec. 8 on I-394 at approximately 9:45 p.m. CT. He showed signs of impairment and ultimately his blood alcohol content tested at 0.10, according to the Minnesota State Patrol. The legal limit in Minnesota is 0.08.

Phillips was booked into the Hennepin County jail and released early the next morning after posting $300 bond. He accompanied the team to Las Vegas later that day and continued working through the end of the regular season.

On Feb. 15, Phillips entered a guilty plea to an amended charge of misdemeanor careless driving.

He paid a $300 fine and a $78 surcharge and was assigned to perform eight hours of community work at a non-profit within 60 days.

O’Connell said in December that he was “incredibly disappointed.”
