Vikings suspend Offensive Coordinator Wes Phillips for three weeks after his December arrest

Vikings OC Wes Phillips’ DUI Arrest and Suspension: A Closer Look

In December, Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Wes Phillips was pulled over for speeding and found to have a blood-alcohol level above the state’s legal limit of 0.08%. As a result, he was suspended by the team for three weeks without pay.

Following his arrest on Dec. 8, Phillips was booked into Hennepin County jail but released the next day after posting a $300 bond. Despite the arrest, he joined the Vikings on their team flight to Las Vegas later that day and was not disciplined during the regular season.

Vikings head coach Kevin O’Connell expressed disappointment in Phillips following the arrest, emphasizing that he cared deeply about him. The suspension will significantly impact Phillips’ role in pre-draft preparation and the beginning of offseason strength and conditioning program.

In February, Phillips pled guilty to a lesser charge of careless driving, which includes one year of probation, a $378 fine, and eight hours of community service. He is the son of former NFL head coach Wade Phillips and grandson of former NFL head coach Bum Phillips.
