Curtis Modkins

Running Game Coordinator/Running Backs


Curtis Modkins is in his third season with the Minnesota Vikings as running backs/run game coordinator and 29th year coaching in 2024. Before joining the Vikings in 2022, he served as the running backs coach for the Denver Broncos for four seasons (2018-21).

In his second season with the Vikings in 2023, Modkins helped RB Alexander Mattison reach career highs in games started (13), rushing attempts (180), rushing yards (700) and receiving touchdowns (three). He also oversaw the development of second-year back Ty Chandler, who appeared in all 17 games for the Vikings, making four starts, and was a weapon on both offense and special teams. Chandler became just the fifth running back in the past five seasons (2019-23) to log at least 130 rushing yards and a touchdown during the first start of a player's NFL career with his performance at Cincinnati in Week 15. He also executed two successful fake punts in 2023, including a 31-yard run on the fake punt in the fourth quarter in Week 11 at the Denver Broncos - the fourth-longest fake punt in Vikings history.
