Ex-Viking Mike Harris on failed comeback, desire to work in NFL front office

May 15, 2019 08:30 PM

Former Vikings guard Mike Harris said he's feeling good when KSTP Sports talked to him at Mike Zimmer's charity golf tournament this week. He was forced to retire in 2017 as a player because of a congenital brain condition.

Harris, who spent last season as an offensive line coach at Hopkins High School and will do so again this year, said he will apply for coaching and scouting internships available with the Vikings for training camp in 2019 or 2020. His passion is to scout for an NFL front office.

Harris did look at the possibility of coming back as a player, but it's not meant to be after some recent checkups on his brain.
