Minneapolis (CBS HOUSTON) – The Minnesota Vikings are 5-2, leading the NFC North and many contend are the best team to reach the Super Bowl out of the NFC. Their offensive coordinator Norv Turner has decided to resign from his position with the team.
The Vikings lost many key players on the offense this season. Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater went down before the season after tearing all three ligaments in his knee. The Vikings went out and got Sam Bradford from the Eagles and he led them to a 5-0 start. The Vikings also lost Matt Kahlil, their’ top tackle after just two weeks in the season. They also lost Adrian Peterson to a knee injury after week three and young dynamic wide receiver Stephen Diggs has missed multiple games.
Despite that, the team’s pay has been solid enough to make some waves in the NFC after making the playoffs last season.
Here is the statement from Norv Turner on his resignation:
