Two Former Viking Coaches Signing (Video)

Above is an iFolloSports.com original video of former Minnesota Vikings coaches Bud Grant and Jerry Burns signing autographs. This scene took place Saturday, at Fan HQ Apparel and Collectables, in the Twin Cities suburb of Eden Prairie, Minnesota.

Grant is the most legendary coach in Vikings history, guiding the team to four Super Bowls in the 1970’s; behind the famous “Purple People Eaters” defense and Hall of Fame quarterback Fran Tarkenton. Even though the Vikings lost all of those Super Bowl appearances, winning four NFC titles still stands as an incredible accomplishment.  Grant also won four championships as a CFL head coach in the 1960's. He is a member of both the Pro Football and Canadian Football Hall of Fames. 

Burns was a longtime Minnesota assistant coach, prior to serving as the Vikings head man from 1986-1991.

Both Grant and Burns are 88-years-old.
