Vikings extend Studwell's contract

BY SEAN JENSEN
Pioneer Press

The Vikings have agreed to terms on a multiyear contract extension with Scott Studwell to remain the team's director of college scouting, owner Zygi Wilf said Saturday.

"We're very happy to have him aboard for the next several years," Wilf said of Studwell.

Studwell, 51, who has served in his current capacity since April 2002, re-signed despite a void created when the top personnel executive job was vacated last week by Fran Foley. Studwell's contract, along with those of the remaining scouts, was set to expire at the end of this month.

After 14 seasons as a linebacker, Studwell enters his 14th year in the club's personnel department.

Wilf also said the club is evaluating all of the scouts on the staff but most are expected to re-sign contracts as well.

:shock: Scott is 51 already?

It doesn't seem like it's been that long since he played.

And foolish Foley said there was gonna be a "bloodbath."
Boy am I glad that jerk is gone!

Was there any doubt in your mind that they wouldn't?

Other then firing Tice, this is one of the best moves Wilf made so far.. Hopefully now that other great move Wilf made (You know, hiring Childress) works out better..

This should have been a no brainer for Wilf.

Make a note that they signed him to a multiyear deal. We are set now as far as scouting goes. This is great news.

Good decision.

Now all they need to do is work out the management structure!
