Minnesota elevates Frazier from interim to permanent head coach

Leslie Frazier Vikings coach (NFL)

The Minnesota Vikings players have said all along that they wanted Leslie Frazier to continue as their head coach.

Owner Zigy Wilf must’ve been listening because he did exactly what the players had suggested.

Earlier in the week, the Vikings management decided to remove the interim tag and keep Frazier, who was the defensive coordinator, and make him the head coach.

Frazier says that he’ll look over the roster, staff, and schemes to see where improvement is needed to get the Vikings back in the playoffs.

He did indicate that he will not ask 41-year-old Brett Favre back under any condition.

Frazier was selected by Wilf on November 22 to replace the controversial Brad Childress who was fired. The Vikings went 3-3 under him after a 3-7 start. The players were more relaxed as opposed to being uptight under Childress who belittled them in the press at times.

3-7 record gets Brad Childress fired

Brad Childress wanted to ride Brett Favre’s arm and experience to the Super Bowl. Instead, he rode the quarteback’s poor play to the unemployment line.

Following a season where he got a contract extension and was one win from the Super Bowl, Brad Childress was fired earlier this week by the Minnesota Vikings. The firing ends a very tumultuous run with the team which has been plagued with player unrest, livid fans, bad trades and an angry owner who was tiring of his abrupt decisions.

Defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier, who has interviewed seven times to become an NFL head coach at various places, will serve as the interim head coach for the remainder of the season.

Childress, is the second NFL coach to be fired this season after Dallas Got rid of Wade Phillips.
