NFL.com's Mike Silver does not expect Norv Turner to end up as the Bills' offensive coordinator.
Turner was believed to be in the mix to accompany Sean McDermott to Buffalo, but Silver doesn't believe that's in the cards. McDermott coached with Mike McCoy in Carolina and should be going all out to bring McCoy to the Bills. Jan 11 - 9:35 PM

Former Chargers coach and Vikings OC Norv Turner said he wants to continue coaching.

"I just enjoy it too much," Turner said. "I really enjoy teaching the players." Turner is now 64, but he remains one of the sharpest offensive minds in the game. He should get plenty of calls when the coaching carousel starts spinning.

Coach Mike Zimmer said he was "very, very surprised" when OC Norv Turner informed the team of his resignation on Wednesday.

It was fair to wonder whether Turner jumped ship or he was pushed off. But this sounds like it was all his decision. There had been rumors this was going to be Turner's last season anyway. Maybe his heart simply wasn't in it anymore. That's fine. But the Vikings are in a bind already on a short week. TEs coach Pat Shurmur was promoted to OC following Turner's departure.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Norv Turner has resigned as the Vikings' offensive coordinator.

This comes as quite the shock. Turner, 64, has been calling the plays in Minnesota since coach Mike Zimmer took the job at the start of the 2014 season. It's fair to wonder if Turner was forced out after the Vikings scored just 10 points in back-to-back games against the Eagles and Bears following the Week 6 bye. Both were Vikings losses after the team started 5-0. It's no secret the defense has been carrying Minnesota all season, as Turner's unit is 31st in total yards and 25th in points. But he lost Teddy Bridgewater (torn ACL) and Adrian Peterson (torn meniscus) to early-season knee injuries. The offensive line has also been riddled with injuries and can't block anyone. Look for OL coach Tony Sparano or TEs coach Pat Shurmur to take over for Turner.

Speaking about his plans for the Vikings' 2014 offense, new OC Norv Turner said "balance is the most critical thing."

"It's all about balance," Turner said. "We need to be good at all things." Turner was once among the league's best in running a balanced offense, but got pass happy near the end of his run in San Diego. His 2013 Browns offense was inexplicably the most pass heavy in the league, but that was largely a result of the Browns' total lack of talent at running back. That won't be an issue in Minnesota, but quarterback will. Regardless of who's under center, expect Norval to pound away with Adrian Peterson.

Vikings hired ex-Browns OC Norv Turner as offensive coordinator.

Turner is the second coordinator to leave the Browns this week after DC Ray Horton signed with the Titans earlier on Saturday. In Minnesota, he'll have complete control of the offense under defensive-minded HC Mike Zimmer. The Vikings have an unsettled quarterback situation going into the offseason, but Turner's aggressive passing scheme should maximize the talents of Cordarrelle Patterson and Greg Jennings. He also figures to incorporate more of a commitment to the running game behind Adrian Peterson after ranking 27th in rushing offense with the Browns this past season. Turner is an upgrade over Bill Musgrave's conservative, West Coast system and will look to improve one of the worst passing attacks in the league in 2013.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Vikings and in-limbo Browns OC Norv Turner "are close to a deal" that will make Turner the Vikings' offensive coordinator.

Multiple media outlets have seconded the report, while FOX Sports' Alex Marvez adds that Norv's son, Scott, will be named QBs coach. Scott worked with Norv in Cleveland as the Browns WRs coach. Norv's hiring is a big one for the Vikings, but he's thrust into another situation where there's no quarterback in place. At least this time Norv has Adrian Peterson. Cordarrelle Patterson is also an interesting fit into Norv's downfield, aggressive passing attack.
Thu, Jan 16, 2014 09:06:00 AM

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 has 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.
Wed, Jan 15, 2014 02:00:00 PM

The Baltimore Sun reports Norval Turner is a candidate for the Ravens' offensive-coordinator vacancy.

Turner made the most of his limited weapons in Cleveland, and would be an ideal fit for big-armed Joe Flacco. Although the Browns all but abandoned the ground game in 2013, Turner also has a long history of successfully running the ball, coaching the league's rushing champ five separate times. He'd be an improvement on Jim Caldwell.
