MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota Vikings have targeted Norv Turner as the offensive coordinator under new coach Mike Zimmer.
Turner told The Associated Press in a brief phone interview Thursday that he and Zimmer have been talking about the job. Turner said nothing was finalized but ''hopefully it works out.''
Zimmer was hired Wednesday. He will be a first-time head coach after spending the last 14 seasons as a defensive coordinator for three different NFL teams, the last six with Cincinnati. Turner has 15 years as an NFL head coach on his resume, including from 2007-12 with San Diego. He spent last season as the offensive coordinator for Cleveland.
Bill Musgrave has been Minnesota's offensive coordinator the last three years under coach Leslie Frazier.
