Chris Coleman, the mayor of St. Paul, took to Twitter on Wednesday night after watching video featuring new Vikings coach Mike Zimmer. He made a comparison that wasn't exactly flattering.
Am I the only one reminded of Les Steckel when I see film of the new Vikings coach?— Chris Coleman (@mayorcoleman) January 16, 2014
For those who need a history lesson, Steckel was named coach of the Vikings 30 years ago, after Bud Grant retired, and lasted only one season. His team went 3-13.
Here's a Sports Illustrated story from that season that should help explain the mayor's tweet.
