The Minnesota Vikings’ bid for a win Sunday involves the past. Leslie Frazier was the head coach last year at this time. He is now the defensive coordinator for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. His return provides a mixture of memories and incentive. It’s not been great, but make no mistake — the Vikings defense has improved.
The Minnesota Vikings have targeted Norv Turner as the offensive coordinator under new coach Mike Zimmer. Turner told The Associated Press in a brief phone interview Thursday that he and Zimmer have been talking about the job. Turner said nothing was finalized yet.
Vikings coach Leslie Frazier says he plans to talk to the team on Monday amid mounting frustration after a fourth straight loss.
The Minnesota Vikings have hired Alan Williams as their new defensive coordinator.
The man responsible for taking the Minnesota Vikings defense to another level is a man with whom the team is quite familiar.
