Minneapolis, MN - On the same day Minnesota learned it will host the 2018 Super Bowl, Pro Football Hall of Famer Bud Grant celebrated his 87th birthday.

Grant was born on May 20th, 1927 and was raised in Superior, Wisconsin. He coached the Vikings for 18 seasons, leading the franchise to 11 division titles and four Super Bowl appearances.

Minneapolis hosted the Super Bowl in January 1992 when Washington defeated Buffalo at the Metrodome. The 2018 game will be played at the new Vikings' Stadium.
