NORV TURNER RUMORS & GOSSIP

Norv Turner: Jerick McKinnon is “’Vikings RB”

Ben Tate’s arrival wasn’t major cause for concern anyway. The Vikings claimed running back Ben Tate off waivers on Wednesday, but offensive coordinator Norv Turner said Thursday that his arrival was not going to result in a change of their depth chart. “We’re excited about Jerick and what he’s done and I see him as our running back,” Turner said, via the Pioneer Press...

The Minnesota Vikings are 4-5 and their rebuilding process has looked marvellous so far with new head coach Mike Zimmer and offensive coordinator Norv Turner. Rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater has shown plenty of signs that he belongs as this team’s quarterback, though there is some frustration among one of their key players.

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.

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. In fact, in the last 40 years, quarterbacks have only been selected twice with the eighth pick (and recently, too...

"Thats the challenge," Turner said in a session with the media prior to the start of training camp Tuesday. "Theres a lot of things we cant control, but if we can get the practice...
