Meet Norv Turner, the Offensive Coordinator for the Vikings, and the man that will hopefully spearhead an improved passing and scoring attack. Turner has many years of coaching experience, so we’re confident he’ll be able to get the job done.
Like with most coaches, he started out in the college ranks. In Turner’s case, he had a near decade long stop with USC. From there, he made his coaching debut in the NFL with the Los Angeles Rams in 1985, acting as a Wide Receivers Coach. For the rest of his career in the NFL he would have stints as an Offensive Coordinator, as well as the occasional Head Coaching gig.
Turner had Head Coaching stops with the football team in Washington, the Oakland Raiders and the San Diego Chargers. He achieved the most success with Chargers, going 56-40 in his six seasons at the helm.
Today, Turner is in charge of creating the offensive game plan for the Vikes. And given his track record, expect to see big things from the Vikings offense this year.
