Vikings QBs Coach Addresses the Vince Young Issue

After spending the last five seasons as Vince Young's position coach with the Tennessee Titans, newly hired Minnesota Vikings quarterbacks coach Craig Johnson knew he'd be asked about VY, who the owner has said will be released or traded this off-season. (In other words, tampering won't be an issue here)

"I know that question is going to be coming," Johnson told Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean. "So my answer is going to be this: I do have a relationship with Vince, a long relationship with him. But the head coach and ownership and the offensive coordinator of the Minnesota Vikings — they're the ones that are going to make the decision. The assistant coaches coach.

"I am sure they'll do due diligence on Vince, and every quarterback that is going to be available on the market is going to be discussed. I know it is going to be discussed, and I'll put my two cents worth on him because obviously I have more of a relationship with him that most. And then whatever decision is going to be made will be made. Obviously I have a good working relationship with Vince, and he produced pretty well under me."

It's hard to ask for a better response to a potentially tricky question, as Johnson is basically saying "Hey, Vince Young and I have a good relationship, he was productive when I coached him, but I know my role and I'm not the one making the personnel decisions up here."
