When I was putting together the “Minnesota Vikings Super Bowl XI Players: Where Are They Now?” article, there was a video that I watched while conducting my research. In the video were many clips of the Vikings in the early ‘70s and also some video of Bud Grant.
I got to thinking, how many coaches have coached the Vikings, and what are their records and reputations with regards to their importance to the franchise?
Here is an awesome statistic. The Vikings are only on their eighth coach in team history. That’s right, since 1961 and the inception of the franchise. Pretty impressive! Some franchises are on their eighth coach in the last 20 years.
This article covers every single coach the Vikings have had in their storied history. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I had writing it.
The order is simply from beginning of the franchise to current man, Leslie Frazier.
Be sure to check out the slide following Frazier's, it contains my rankings.
