Ex-Minnesota Vikings Coach: Mike Zimmer is 'one of the finest coaches I've ever seen'

Former Minnesota Vikings coach Jerry Burns attended a minicamp practice this spring and was thoroughly impressed with this year's team. "This team has a lot of faith in their coach," Burns said, via the official website of the Minnesota Vikings. "You can see how they go out here and they practice hard. I know they will play hard. I just like every aspect of this team." For Burns...

OC Norv Turner looking for WR Charles Johnson to have a breakout season

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Charles Johnson gave a taste of what he could do in a limited role in 2014, but offensive coordinator Norv Turner believes the pass catcher is ready for primetime. Along with the addition of Mike Wallace could create serious problems for opposing defenses this season. Turner coached Johnson in Cleveland in 2012, and when the team had the opportunity...

Norv Turner lands at No. 2 for top offensive coordinators in NFL.

Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Norv Turner's experiences working with offenses are well documented and he was even called the 'quarterback whisperer' by his former signal caller Brad Johnson.

Turner has great quote in defense of Bridgewater

Minnesota Vikings’ quarterback Teddy Bridgewater choked during a particular portion of his pro day workout last year. This was something that may have caused him to slip to the 32nd overall pick in last year’s draft. The exact drill where Bridgewater struggled was when he was to throw a pass over raised brooms which were supposed to simulate an oncoming pass rush. Bridgewater’s...

Vikings will lean heavily on Turner in evaluation of quarterbacks

INDIANAPOLIS -- When he was introduced as the Minnesota Vikings' offensive coordinator, Norv Turner joked that he doesn't have to decide on when his new team will have to draft a quarterback.

New Vikings OC Norv Turner Already on Hot Seat

How quickly has a new NFL coaching assistant been fired? I know the Browns fired Rob Chudzinski after one season as a Head Coach, and the Raiders pretty much fire head coaches at the end of every season as well, but I can't think of many instances when someone like an Offensive Coordinator or other assistant coach was fired in the same offseason that he was hired. But if new...

Could Derek Carr thrive in a Norv Turner lead Minnesota Vikings offense?

The eighth pick in the draft is frustrating—typically franchises with the eighth pick haven’t solved their problems behind center but are left generally finding another position to strengthen with the hope that they can find a way to grab a quarterback next year. In fact, in the last 40 years, quarterbacks have only been selected twice with the eighth pick (and recently, too...
