Vikings Hire Packers Assistant
Jan. 12, 2006
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) _ The Minnesota Vikings hired Green Bay quarterbacks coach Darrell Bevell as their offensive coordinator Thursday.
Minnesota also hired Darrell Wyatt to coach the receivers, the same position he has held since 2002 at Oklahoma. Wyatt has coached in the college ranks since 1989.
Bevell has been an assistant with the rival Packers since 2000, serving as quarterbacks coach since 2003. He was a 23-year-old sophomore quarterback for Wisconsin in the 1993 season, leading the Badgers to a Big Ten title and the Rose Bowl. Bevell, who left Madison with 19 school passing records, was a college assistant from 1996-99 until moving to the NFL.
