The Minnesota Vikings are looking to interview two 49ers assistant coaches for their head-coaching job on Saturday while the team is in Charlotte, N.C.

Offensive coordinator Greg Roman has an interview scheduled with the Vikings, reports ESPN. And a source told CSNBayArea.com the Vikings have also inquired about interviewing 49ers defensive line coach Jim Tomsula the day before the 49ers' divisional playoff game against the Carolina Panthers.

The Vikings previously interviewed Seattle defensive coordinator Dan Quinn and offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell, Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer, Arizona Cardinals defensive coordinator Todd Bowles and Cleveland Browns defensive coordinator Ray Horton. They're also requested permission to speak with Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Adam Gase and defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio.

The Vikings fired head coach Leslie Frazier after the club went 21-32-1 in more than three years.
