Vikings’ strength coach leaves to take a tennis job

Even though Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer is optimistic about the offensive line, he will need to wait for the regular season in order to really assess growth.

In what may be the first case of an NFL coach leaving to work in tennis, the Vikings have lost their strength and conditioning coach.

Vikings strength and conditioning coach Brent Salazar has left the team to take a job with the U.S. Tennis Association.

Salazar has only been with the Vikings for a year. He previously spent five seasons with the Chiefs. Salazar played tennis in college at New Mexico.

The Vikings will now look for their third strength and conditioning coach in the last three years.
