Vikings not done adding coaches, hire former Eagles center Fraley


The Vikings announced their coaching staff to the public last week after keeping official hirings under wraps since naming Mike Zimmer head coach in January.

The announcement doesn't mean the Purple are done bringing in coaches though, and today they hired former Eagles center and 11-year NFL player Hank Fraley as an assistant offensive line coach.

As noted in the Star Tribune's tweet, Fraley most recently served as offensive line coach at San Jose State, a Mountain West program that lost to the Gophers 43-24 this season and missed out on a bowl despite going 6-6 on the year.

Before his one season at SJSU, Fraley served as offensive line coach for the San Diego Toreros of the FCS for a year.

Fraley ended his playing career with the St. Louis Rams in 2010, and was part of the Eagles team that eliminated the Vikings from the playoffs in 2004.
