Mike Morris American Football Player

Mike Morris is a former long snapper for the Minnesota Vikings, a current radio host on KFAN in Minneapolis, and Strength and Conditioning Coach for Concordia University (Saint Paul). Morris was a four-year starter at Northeast Missouri State, and entered the National Football League as an undrafted free agent. He played brief stints for the Arizona Cardinals, the Kansas City Chiefs, the New England Patriots, the Seattle Seahawks, and the Cleveland Browns before settling in as the long snapper for the Vikings, where he played consistently throughout the 1990s. During the 1998 playoff game against the Atlanta Falcons for the Minnesota Vikings, he was blamed by Dennis Green for the snap being too high leading to Gary Anderson's only missed field goal of the year. Following the end of his career, Morris took over the morning drive time slot on sports radio station KFAN after the failure of Dan Cole’s show necessitated a replacement. Morris broadcasts using the moniker ‘The Superstar’ and his show is known as The Power Trip Morning Show. Morris is also the co-host of Vikings Fanline with Cory "Sludge" Cove.
