Report: Norv Turner Close To Being Named Vikings OC
Norv Turner is always going to be in demand as a coach because he’s one of the greatest offensive minds the game of football has ever seen.
Adam Schefter is reporting that Turner is set to return to the NFC and will likely be named offensive coordinator for the Minnesota Vikings and new head coach Mike Zimmer.
Vikings and Norv Turner are close to a deal and league sources believe he will be Mike Zimmer's offensive coordinator in Minnesota.

Zimmer’s specialty is on the defensive side of the ball, so it is more important than ever to find a capable offensive mind to help improve the offense.
Turner is under contract in Cleveland for three more years but after the recent upheaval in the Browns organization, Turner is being given the freedom to seek employment elsewhere.
