Two days after the Minnesota Vikings were ousted from the playoffs, coach Mike Zimmer ousted offensive line coach Jeff Davidson.

Zimmer said Davidson's contract will not be renewed for 2016 but that he expects offensive coordinator Norv Turner to be back next season.

Davidson has spent the past five years with the Vikings. He has been in coaching for 25 years with stops at New Orleans, Carolina, New England, Cleveland and Minnesota.

The Vikings had their share of struggles across the offensive line during the 2015 season, starting when veteran center John Sullivan and right tackle Phil Loadholt were placed on season-ending injured reserve.

The Minnesota offense generated the fourth-fewest yards and ranked No. 16 in the NFL in scoring during the 2015 season despite winning the NFC North and advancing to the postseason.
