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.
