Reports: Turner deal is complete with Vikings

  • Updated: January 19, 2014 - 12:27 AM

The Vikings struck a deal with Norv Turner to become the offensive coordinator under coach Mike Zimmer, according to media reports Saturday.

CBSSports.com first reported the move, followed by ESPN.com and the NFL Network. The Vikings did not make an announcement.

The offense should be in expert hands under Turner, who has 38 years of coaching experience. The Vikings were plagued with inconsistency at quarterback throughout the season and finished 23rd in pass offense (214.2 yards per game) in a pass-happy league.

Turner spent last season as the Browns offensive coordinator after serving six years as the Chargers head coach. The Browns also dealt with issues at quarterback last season but still finished 11th in pass offense (252.4 ypg). The Browns’ Josh Gordon led the league with 1,646 receiving yards.

• In other Vikings news, running back Adrian Peterson reportedly will visit a specialist in Philadelphia about his season long groin issue, according to the USA Today.
