With the main jobs all filled, the Vikings are now just putting the finishing touches on their coaching staff. To that end, the Vikes have reportedly plucked Hank Fraley away from San Jose State and added him as an assistant.
Fraley coached offensive line at San Jose State and before that played center in the NFL, starting 123 games over 10 seasons including one year in Cleveland with current Vikings O-line coach Jeff Davidson.
Fraley had stints with the Eagles, Browns and Rams before calling it quits after 2010 and entering coaching.
Fraley will help out with an offensive line that was 6th best in the league last year according to PFF. As far as I’m aware, Fraley is not related by blood or marriage to any current member of the Vikings’ staff.
