COACH CAROUSEL

Vikings hired Mike Zimmer as head coach.

After the Titans hired Ken Whisenhunt as head coach Monday, Zimmer emerged as the clear favorite to land the Minnesota job. Tennessee was also vying for his services. There never really were any other candidates for the Vikings. Zimmer was the only one to receive a second interview, which took place on Tuesday. Vikings brass was mulling over whether to bring in more candidates for second looks but decided to offer the job to the much-deserved Zimmer. He'll bring a completely different personality to the Vikings than previous coach Leslie Frazier. Frazier was calm and relatively quiet, while Zimmer is on the fiery side. He'll keep Minnesota's 4-3 defense in place and reportedly has interest in bringing in Norv Turner to run the offense. The Vikings certainly upgraded on Wednesday.

I think Norv Turner still has a OC contract with the Browns. Would the Browns let him go?
f**k Roman must be horrible in interviews because no one wants him afterwards.

This. I mentioned this a few posts up and isn't it telling that they haven't been reported as candidates at all?

Well that answers the why didn't Minnesota hire a QB-minded HC. If they get Norv, it would be the next best thing considering the market.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Vikings have received permission to interview in limbo Browns OC Norv Turner for the same position in Minnesota.

Neither Norval nor DC Ray Horton have formally been relieved of their duties in Cleveland, but the wayward franchise has allowed them to interview for jobs as their quixotic coaching search rolls on.

Turner had grown stale by the end of his time in San Diego, but produced more points than should have been expected in Cleveland considering his lack of a viable quarterback or running back. He'd be a strong addition to new coach Mike Zimmer's staff, and a welcome hire for Adrian Peterson. Turner has coached five rushing champs during his career.

I guess this means that Browns have to let him go, if the Vikings want him.

They can not let him interview and then refuse to let him go, can they?

Ray Horton is apparently jumping ship to Tennessee

I think Minnesota is a good fit for Roman. If the Vikings has any one that knows football they would go with Roman. They need an HC/OC for consistency on offense. Roman is more than capable of making Ponder into a good qb. And with APeterson, that offense can be legit --even dangerous.

Do you think that Roman is a good offensive coordinator?

It seems that many people who feel he is not a good offensive coordinator think he will be a good head coach.

I find this rather confusing. Well, at least it confuses me.

I think he's a good offensive coordinator. I also think he doesn't do enough with what he has. That doesn't make him a bad OC. It just makes him an underachiever.

I'm not sold on Ken Whisenhunt, but he's better off being in Tennessee then he is in Cleveland.
