Vikings hire James Saxon to coach running backs

The Minnesota Vikings have hired James Saxon as their running backs coach.

Saxon's addition was announced by the team Monday, filling out head coach Leslie Frazier's staff.

Saxon has been an NFL assistant for 11 years, including the last three as running backs coach for the Miami Dolphins. Prior to that, he was in the same role for seven seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs. Eight players he supervised, including Ronnie Brown, Larry Johnson, Tony Richardson and Priest Holmes, went to the Pro Bowl.

Saxon replaces Eric Bieniemy, who is the new offensive coordinator at Colorado. Saxon played in the NFL from 1988-95 with the Chiefs, Dolphins and Eagles.
