Just one day after an introductory press conference named Mike Zimmer the Vikings' new head coach, he's filled his two coordinator positions.

Norv Turner is the Vikings new offensive coordinator, while George Edwards will serve as the Vikings new defensive coordinator.

They replace Bill Musgrave and Alan Williams who, like the rest of Leslie Frazier's staff, still have one year remaining in their contracts.

Turner, who has head coaching experience in his career, was most recently the Cleveland Browns' offensive coordinator.

Edwards moves to the Vikings after serving as the Dolphins linebackers coach.

The hirings were first reported by the NFL Network. No official statement has been issued yet by the Vikings.
