Report: Norv Turner finalizes deal with Vikings

Posted · Add Comment

The Minnesota Vikings have reached a deal with Norv Turner to become their new offensive coordinator, according to CBS Sports.

Turner has been a head coach for 15 seasons.

He was the Cleveland Browns' offensive coordinator last season.

“I think there's a good chance it's going to happen,” Turner told the Pioneer Press on Thursday. “I think it will be resolved in the next day or two. … We've had great conversations (Turner and Zimmer). I think a lot of Mike.”

Turner has an overall head-coaching record of 114-122-1 with three teams.

In Minnesota, Turner inherits a quarterback issue and the 23rd-ranked passing offense.

The Vikings do have star running back Adrian Peterson.

The Vikings could be in the market for a new quarterback, though.
