NORV TURNER RUMORS & GOSSIP

Minnesota Vikings OC Norv Turner More Than Happy With Teddy Bridgewater

It's been awhile since new Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Norv Turner has worked as just the offensive coordinator. When Minnesota hired the team likely hoped that one thing would happen--that he could replicate the success he saw with the Cowboys way back in the day with he Vikings.That depends. Does he have all the pieces he needs?@Vikings/TwitterAdrian Peterson is the...

Norv Turner has irrational confidence in Vikings quarterbacks

(Credit: CBS) The Minnesota Vikings have a legitimate QB competition on their hands heading into training camp. Offensive coordinator Norv Turner has said that Matt Cassel. Christian Ponder, and rookie Teddy Bridgewater will all have a chance to win the starting job. That makes sense. What doesn’t make sense is the amount of praise Turner is giving two mediocre guys and a player...

Loud and clear: Turner gets Vikings' players attention, respect quickly

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- A voice rises loudly over the Minnesota Vikings practice fields, a new coach clearly audible, shouting -- sometimes with colorful language -- to get the attention of the players.  Only this coach isn't Mike Zimmer, Minnesota's new head coach known for his fiery personality.  No, the coach most noticeable during the Vikings' summer practices has been Norv...

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. Turner might not make the final call, but he's going to have a big say in when and where Minnesota tries to find its next young quarterback, and on who it will be. Vikings general manager Rick...

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.

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.
