The Minnesota Vikings announced first-year head coach Mike Zimmer's staff last week, but made another addition on Monday. 

The Vikings tagged former NFL center Hank Fraley as an assistant offensive line coach to current OL coach Jeff Davidson, who was one of a handful of Leslie Frazier assistants retained by Zimmer.

Fraley played 11 seasons in the NFL with Philadelphia (2000-05), Cleveland (2006-09) and St. Louis (2010) before retiring. 

Fraley, 36, played under Davidson in 2006 when the current Vikings' OL coach was the Browns' offensive coordinator and assistant head coach.

Fraley got his first coaching experience at the University of San Diego in 2012 as an assistant OL coach and most recently as San Jose State's OL coach last season. This is Fraley's first NFL coaching job.
