When Mike Zimmer took the Vikings job earlier today, it left the Browns as the last vacancy.
And now, Zimmer’s trying to help make it a little more vacant in Cleveland.
According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Vikings have received permission to interview Browns offensive coordinator Norv Turner for the same job.
The Browns have likewise held the door for defensive coordinator Ray Horton to make a lateral move, which indicates they don’t have a strong desire to keep them on hand for the new head coach.
Turner’s resume as an offensive coordinator is strong, and he’d be an interesting fit for Adrian Peterson and some young quarterback, assuming the Vikings don’t want to spend much more time on the Christian Ponder project.
