Minnesota’s championship coaching staff

Say what you will about the members of the Vikings coaching staff, but their experience in working with Super Bowl-winning teams during their careers is something that shouldn’t go unnoticed.

Multiple Minnesota coaches have been a part of Super Bowl champion staffs in the past including Mike Zimmer, Gary Kubiak, Rick Dennison, Adam Zimmer, and Dom Capers. The Vikings assistant defensive backs coach, Roy Anderson, was even a member of the LSU coaching staff that just won the college football national championship in the 2019 season.

These guys have worked with some of the best players in NFL history and they’ve seen what it takes to get to the top of the league. If anyone is going to point Minnesota’s players in the right direction, it’s going to be their group of coaches that have a championship ring obnoxiously covered in diamonds locked up in a safe somewhere.

The key for the Vikings is getting their younger players to buy into what these coaches are attempting to teach them. But a simple Google search should be all the convincing these young guys need to go along with what their coaches would like them to do.
