Childress fired; Frazier hiredby Cathy Wurzer, Minnesota Public Radio
The Minnesota Vikings begin the Leslie Frazier era in earnest today. Frazier was named head coach yesterday, after Brad Childress was fired. The team is just 3-7 and suffered a crushing 31-3 loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday in the Metrodome. Team Owner Zygi Wilf introduced Frazier as the interim-head coach, who will lead the team for the last six games of the year.
MPR's Cathy Wurzer spoke with Brian Murphy about the changes. He covers the Vikings for the St. Paul Pioneer Press.
