Jerry Gray is heading to Minnesota.

Gray, who has spent the last three seasons as the Titans’ defensive coordinator, will now be the Vikings’ secondary coach, according to Alex Marvez of FOX Sports.

Although Gray hasn’t previously worked with new Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer, he’s a well-regarded assistant who has coached defensive backs in Seattle and Washington, and he has also been the defensive coordinator of the Bills, and the assistant head coach of the Texas Longhorns.

The 51-year-old Gray played defensive back in the NFL for nine years and was a four-time Pro Bowler.
