The Best Minnesota Vikings Coaches of All Time

Updated June 14, 2019 2.3k votes 514 voters 9.3k views9 items
There's no question that the Minnesota Vikings have had some fantastic coaches over the years, but who is the best Minnesota Vikings head coach in franchise history? Help us answer that question by voting for your favorite Minnesota Vikings coaches, keeping stats like Super Bowl wins and regular season win percentage in mind.
 
It's hard to argue that Bud Grant isn't the greatest Vikings coach of all time. Boasting a .635 regular season win percentage, Grant led Minnesota to the Superbowl 3 out of 4 years between 1973-1976. Unfortunately they lost all three times, leaving them stinging almost as bad as Buffalo.
 
Although Minnesota hasn't played in a Super Bowl since, they've still had some great coaches who have almost gotten there. Coach Dennis Green took the Vikings to the playoffs many times during his 9 season run with the team, with an impressive 97-62 regular season record.
 
If the Minnesota Vikings had a best of all time team, who would coach it? Vote for your favorites below, even  if the coach never won a championship with the Minnesota Vikings.
