Former Dolphins head coach Tony Sparano will be the new Vikings offensive line coach.

Sparano coached Miami from 2008-11 and had a 29-31 record, winning the AFC East in his first season.

He was Jets offensive coordinator in 2012, then was an assistant head coach/offensive line in Oakland (2013-14) and San Francisco's tight ends coach last season.

Sparano also was interim head coach in Oakland in 2014, going 3-9 in 12 games. He coached with Vikings coach Mike Zimmer in Dallas when they were assistants. Sparano has been an NFL coach since 1999.

Zimmer released offensive line coach Jeff Davidson on Tuesday.
