Norv Turner says he was holding the Vikings back

Norv Turner is one of the best offensive minded coaches to ever do it, but the former Vikings OC finally spoke about why he recently stepped away from the game.

“Sometimes, you feel like you might be holding them back,” Turner said, “holding them back from things all getting on the same page. I don’t want anyone to think I was bailing. It just wasn’t working.”

Turner, 64, will not close the door on a return either.

“It’s something people may not understand,” he added. “It’s not me against somebody else. The situation was such … I don’t think I could get done the things we needed to get done. It wasn’t something you just wake up and decide. It’s been building. It wasn’t going to work with me. So let me get out of the way and let them have a chance to make it work.”
