Dennison, who has been with the Vikings for the past two seasons, reportedly lost his job due to refusing the vaccine after the NFL required that staff, coaches and individuals who come in contact with players must be vaccinated.
The Vikings have already replaced the 27-year veteran with Phil Rauscher who will take over Dennison’s duties.
