The mnvikingsblog.com will revisit the previous head coaching regimes of the Minnesota Vikings, starting with their first, former Rams and Eagles standout quarterback, Norm Van Brocklin.
Norm Van Brocklin was a very good NFL player. Unfortunately that did not translate into a lot of wins. His Vikings teams only experienced one winning season. Frequently at odds with his young quarterback, Fran Tarkenton, Van Brocklin lasted only 6 seasons. It was a tough era for an NFL expansion team as the 60s belonged to powerhouse teams like the Cleveland Browns, Baltimore Colts, and Vince Lombardi’s Green Bay Packers.
