Minnesota Vikings Football Coaches:
The Minnesota Vikings would be no where without the dedication of their team of coaches. We want to recognize each and every coach for the Minnesota Vikings for all the great coaching they do for the Minnesota Vikings.
Mike Zimmer, Head Coach:
Mike Zimmer was hired as the 9th Head Coach for the Minnesota VIkings January 15, 2014. This will be Zimmers 21st season on the NFL sideline; he was seen previously as defensive coordinator for Cincinnati (in 2008-13), Atlanta (in 2007) and Dallas (in 2000-06). This will be Mike Zimmers first season coaching the Vikings and we can't wait to see what he does with the team.
George Edwards, Defensive Coordinator:
We also want to welcome George Edwards to the Minnesota Vikings as the Defensive Coordinator. This will be George Edwards’ 3rd round as a Defensive Coordinaror, he held the same title in Washington (in 2003) and Buffalo (in 2010-2011). We're also excited to see what George Edwards can do with the VIkings defensive players.
Mike Priefer, Special Teams:
We see Mike Priefer returning to the Minnesota Vikings coaching staff as the Special Teams Coordinator for his 4th season for the Minnesota Vikings. He is well qualified as he held the same title with the Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs in the past. Welcome back, Mike!
Norv Turner, Offensive Coordinator:
Norv Turner is a veteran of the NFL as this is his 30th season of NFL coaching in 2014. However, it's his 1st as Offensive Coordinator of the Vikings. Norv Turner has 15 seasons as a head coach under his belt! Quite the feat! As the offensive coordinator for Dallas, he helped the Cowboys win Super Bowl XXVII (vs. Buffalo, in1992) and XXVIII (vs. Buffalo, in 1993).
The Vikings are bound to do great things this upcoming season with a great coaching staff!
