The Minnesota Vikings will honor their former head coach, the late Dennis Green, when they enshrine him in their Ring of Honor in September.
Green, who led the Vikings to many successes during his time from 1992 through 2002, died back in July 2016. He will become the 24th member of the team’s Ring of Honor.
“Dennis Green’s impact on the Minnesota Vikings, and really the entire NFL, is still felt to this day,” Vikings owner Mark Wilf said, via the team’s official website. “In addition to being widely regarded as one of the NFL’s top coaches, Denny was also known as a great mentor and leader by all who had the fortune of being in his presence. We’re extremely honored to forever memorialize Denny and his family in the Vikings Ring of Honor and we’re looking forward to the induction in September.”
Green joins a Ring of Honor that includes the likes of Fran Tarkenton, Alan Page, Jim Finks, Bud Grant, Paul Krause, Fred Zamberletti, Jim Marshall, Ron Yary, Korey Stringer, Mick Tingelhoff, Carl Eller, Cris Carter, Bill Brown, Jerry Burns, Randall McDaniel, Chuck Foreman, John Randle, Scott Studwell, Chris Doleman, Matt Blair, Joey Browner, Ahmad Rashad, and Randy Moss.
