Former Minnesota Vikings quarterback Tarvaris Jackson died Sunday night in a one-car crash near his hometown of Montgomery, Alabama. He was 36.
Authorities say Jackson was killed when the vehicle he was driving went off the road, struck a tree and overturned.
Jackson was pronounced dead at a hospital. The crash remains under investigation.
Jackson was hired as quarterbacks coach for Tennessee State last season after a 10-year NFL career with the Vikings, Seattle Seahawks and Buffalo Bills.
He was part of Seattle’s Super Bowl championship team in 2014 as Russell Wilson’s backup.
Jackson played for the Vikings from 2006 until 2010.
