The Vikings, through current and former employees, will be well-represented at the NFL's Career Development Symposium that runs May 30-June 1 at Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.
Vikings coach Mike Zimmer and chief administrative officer Kevin Warren are two of the many speakers and presenters at the three-day program that will "engage aspiring head coach and general manager candidates through presentations, panel discussions, breakout sessions and networking opportunities with owners, club presidents, coaches, general managers and league executives," according to an NFL release on the symposium.
All total, 70 coaches and front office executives are scheduled to be on hand. The Vikings will also be represented with former head coach Dennis Green and former linebackers coach Mike Singletary, who will be among the guests in attendance.
"The Career Development Symposium is an important part of preparing the next generation of NFL head coaches and general managers and continues to build on the progress we have made over the past decade in developing talent," said Robert Gulliver, one of the program's directors and NFL Executive Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer. "We have pulled together a select group that will benefit from the insights of owners, current and former head coaches and GMs, as well as from Wharton faculty that will help them take that next step in their careers."
