Some Notes On Bud Grant Include The Mary Tyler Moore Show

August 28, 2019

Bud Grant turned 92 years old this year.

He coached the Winnipeg Blue Bombers to 4 Grey Cup/Canadian Football League crowns.

Additionally, he was a reserve player on the 1950 Minneapolis Lakers’ basketball title team.

“Mr. Grant” coached the Minnesota Vikings to eleven division titles, seven in years the fabulous “Mary Tyler Moore Show,” which was set in Minneapolis, aired.

Ed Asner played “Mr. (Lou) Grant” and in seven of the eight years the show aired in first run (1970-1977), the Vikings under Bud Grant won at least a division crown. Only in 1972 did they fail to do so.
