Vikings reach deal with Norv Turner for OC


MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (AP) -- As expected, the Vikings have tabbed an experienced coordinator and former head coach to oversee their offense.

The Vikings will be adding Norv Turner as offensive coordinator, Jason La Canfora of reported on Saturday.

The 61-year-old Turner was the Browns' offensive coordinator in 2013. He had spent the previous six seasons as the Chargers' head coach. Turner was also the Redskins' head coach from 1994 through 2000 and the Raiders' head coach from 2004 through 2005.

Turner rose to NFL prominence as the Cowboys' offensive coordinator from 1991-1993. He also served as offensive coordinator in San Diego (2001), Miami (2002-2003) and San Francisco (2006).

Turner's departure leaves the Browns to replace both their offensive and defensive coordinators for 2014, as well as their head coach. Earlier Saturday, Ray Horton was named the Titans' defensive coordinator.

The Browns fired head coach Rob Chudzinski on December 29.
