Former Vikings coach Mike Tice appears to be walking away from the game after 35 years in the NFL. Not because he’s lost the passion. But because as a coach, he doesn’t see the value.
According to KFAN’s Dan Barreiro, Tice doesn’t think players want to be coached anymore.
Tice has been the Oakland Raiders offensive line coach since 2015.
He was the Vikings head coach from 2001 to 2005, amassing a 32-33 record, including a playoff win in 2004 after the team snuck into the playoffs with an 8-8 record.
In 2012, Tice was the offensive coordinator of the Chicago Bears.
Tice played 14 seasons in the NFL has a tight end, the final three with the Vikings. He caught 107 passes for 894 yards and 11 touchdowns.

We wish nothing but the best for Tice, 59, in his future...
