It looks like the Vikings are going to have to make a major shift on offense soon, as ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported on Wednesday that offensive coordinator Norv Turner had resigned.

Turner — the former head coach of the Redskins, Raiders, and Chargers — was in the middle of his third season as the offensive coordinator in Minnesota. The Vikings had used the power of their defense to start off the season 5-0, but eventually the poor offense helped give away back-to-back losses to Philadelphia and Chicago.

The Vikings are at the very bottom of the NFL in nearly every offensive category.

Pat Shurmur will serve as the interim offensive coordinator.

Bo was born in Atlanta, GA, and has always been a savvy sports follower. He attended Georgia Tech and has previously worked with ESPN TrueHoop, HawksHoop, and the Georgia Tech Newsroom. He covers national college football for FanBuzz.
