Greg Manusky

Inside Linebackers


Greg Manusky (muh-nuh-skee) returns to the NFL as inside linebackers coach for his 32nd year in the league and first as a coach for the Vikings in 2022. He previously served as the defensive quality control assistant for the University of Kentucky the past two seasons. The former linebacker, who played two seasons for the Vikings from 1991-93, brings 31 combined seasons of NFL experience, 19 coaching and 12 playing, to Head Coach Kevin O'Connell's staff.

During the 2021 season, Manusky helped coach the Wildcats to a 9-3 record, the fourth-best in the SEC. The Kentucky defense held its opponents to 340.8 yards of total offense. In 2020, LB Jamin Davis totaled a career-high 102 total tackles, also third-best in the SEC, and added 1.5 sacks and three interceptions - returning one for a touchdown. Davis was then picked in the first round (No. 19 overall) in the 2021 NFL Draft by the Washington Commanders.

Manusky was the defensive coordinator for the Commanders in 2019, where he coached alongside Vikings Head Coach Kevin O'Connell, who served as the offensive coordinator for the Commanders. He entered the coaching ranks full-time with the Commanders in 2001 as the team's linebackers coach. During his 19 seasons as an NFL coach, 12 different players have earned Pro Bowl selections, six of which have notched All-Pro honors.
