Despite resigning as Vikings offensive coordinator after week 7 in 2016, Norv Turner told SiriusXM NFL Radio on Wednesday he might not be done coaching.
"I’ve had a couple (coaches) reach out to me and ask if I could come in for two or three days to just visit and maybe help a little bit or give some opinions, I'm open to continue coaching in the future. A lot of that would depend on the opportunity."
The Vikings were (5-2) through seven weeks when Turner surprised fans and the organization by walking away from coordinating duties.
Turner came into the coaching profession as a graduate assistant at the University of Oregon in 1975. He has been on a staff every year since, a pattern than ends with this upcoming season.
Turner claimed, "I'm looking forward to football season as a fan or spectator." However, the long-time coach admits, "there will always be that coaching part of it in me."
Football fans will have to wait until 2018 to see if the 65-year-old gets another opportunity to return to coaching the sport he has taught for the past 42 years.
